I used to kid him about it a lot. Asked him why didn't he buy a cannon to shoot off with it. He took it good-natured-like. But we got to talking last week about war in general. That was the first time I even knew he had a son. "His boy, Joe, enlisted right after Pearl Harbor and got overseas fast. When young Joe came back, Jonesey met him at the railroad station, stayed up with him all night and rode out with him to the cemetery on the hill. After it was all over, the sergeant gave Jonesey the flag that had covered Joe. That's it over there. I don't kid Jonesey any more. "Instead, I've been listening respectfully when he talks about the flag . . . only when he says it, it's Flag. With a capital F. Same capital F he puts on Freedom, which is what he really means. Jonesey sure made me think about Freedom a lot. For instance . . . "When I vote, nobody knows where I put my X's. Nobody puts me in jail for picking out my own church. And no teachers tell my kids to spy on me and turn me in because I squawk about taxes or high prices. And when I told my boss I was quitting to open a little grocery with the dough I'd saved in war bonds, he wished me luck and said he'd have his missus buy their groceries from me. "That's what Jonesey meant when he said our Freedom is right under our noses. Can't feel it or see it. But it's there just the same, wrapped up in every star and stripe in that Flag across the street. "And, if you'll excuse me, I'm going out- side and hoist my ouit Flag, too . . . just bought it last night. "Oh say can you see.'"' / sure can . . . now!"

XXXtKU, %, rs Hot-Weather Friend of the Steelworker The white tablet which this steelworker has just taken from the dispenser is a tried-and-true friend to any man whose job involves exposure to heat. It's the old reliable "heat tablet," com- posed of common salt and dextrose. The salt in the tablet replaces salt which the body loses through perspiration; the dextrose supplies quick energy. Bethle- hem Steel doctors first began providing these tablets for steel-plant employees many years ago. Since then heat cases have become few and far between. There has not been a fatality as a result of heat in any of our steel plants in twenty years. A Supplies of heat tablets, kept always within easy reach of steel-plant em- ployees, are one proven means of help- ing to protect health and well-being dur- ing summer months. Another big help is the simple, practical information we give employees on how to keep fit in hot weather. Besides the work of our Medical Staff, our steel-plant management, aided by industrial hygienists and safety engi- neers, is constantly striving to make Bethlehem plants more comfortable to work in during hot weather. Atmos- pheres are being purified by removal of dust and fumes. Ventilation is con- stantly being improved. And with the fully-equipped wash and locker rooms now available at many locations, a man can take a pleasant, restful shower and change to his street clothes before leav- ing the plant. All this adds up to better health and better comfort in any season, in summer most of all. In these ways and in many others, the drao of hot weather on steelmaking is being steadily lessened, and the summer slump in health and efficiency, which once was considered inevitable, has now become virtually a thing of the past. BETHLEHEM STEEL BETHBEHEM STEEL COMMEMEMyT ALMOST perfect weather enhanced the colorful pag- eantry of Commencement week-end last month as Lehigh University awarded baccalaureate degrees to 483 seniors and advanced degrees to 102 graduate students. Five honorary degrees were also conferred. Principal speaker and a recipient of an honorary degree U. S. Senator James H. Duff expressed the belief that a real honest bi-partisan foreign policy is the only answer to unite Americans to adequately and completely equip themselves to oppose communism. "Right now," he said, "we have confusion and complex- ity that is not limited to the people. It occurs in Government and in Congress itself. In order to get rid of it, in order to meet the threat that we face, we have to be united in this country. If we are going to meet the greatest crisis in our history, we have to rise above personalities. This isn't the time to be tearing people down in this country. This is the time to understand the best of everything that everyone has to offer." The former Governor of Pennsylvania said that to have mutual self-help among the free nations, mutual under- standing must exist at home. "The bi-partisan party policy we should have must be based on a desire of mutual self- help to resist aggression. The first thing to bear in mind is that the purpose of a bi-partisan policy is to have peace'; to end aggression by being strong enough to prevent it." In presenting the honorary degree of doctor of laws to Senator Duff, Lehigh's president said, "your fellow citizens applaud the courage, the vigor and the success with which you have advanced the cause of good government. Your counsel and achievements do much to bulwark the confi- dence of the American people in our democratic form of government." For Dr. Raymond S. Haupert, president of Moravian Col- lege and Theological Seminary, the citation read, "for your contributions to the world of learning, for your effective leadership and gracious administration of Moravian College and Seminary, for your active interest in and valued services to the worthy activities looking for civic improvement, Lehigh University and your fellow citizens are happy to offer commendation." Dr. Whitaker's presentation to Dr. Frank L. Boyden, headmaster of Deerfield Academy, was as follows: "your Commencement principals Whitaker, Duff, Grace 3 Marley Double^Flow COOLING TOWERS do their job ceaselessly . . . effortlessly.

It gives us pleasure to publicly recognize such outstanding work in such an im- portant area." Dr. Lawrence H. Gipson, research professor of history at Lehigh, received the honorary degree of doctor of hu- mane letters. The citation read, "each member of the Lehigh family takes pride in your accomplishments and each is delighted that Lehigh has joined hands with the many friends who have acclaimed your abilities and your ac- complishments." Degrees were conferred as follows, business administration, 122; arts, 95; electrical engineering, 61 ; mechanical engineering, 55; chemical engineering, 42; industrial engineering, 35; civil engineering, 32 ; metallurgical engi- neering, 16; engineering physics, 13; chemistry, 11, and mining engineer- ing, 9. Baccalaureate services were held Sunday, June 17, in the newly redeco- rated Packer Memorial Church and the principal speaker was Dr. Liston Pope, dean of the Yale Divinity School, who called for loyalty to the nation which "has nourished the dream of liberty and called us to be champions of free- dom." Every act of freedom must be exer- cised within some framework of order unless it is to be meaningless and self- defeating," he said. "Freedom carries no compass of its own. The direction of the free spirit is necessarily deter- mined by the object or objects of its loyalt)^ If the individual is loyal only to himself, his freedom becomes a tool for self-preservation and aggrandize- ment. In a world composed largely of such persons, anarchy results." rpHE new altar in Packer Church -*- given in memory of Gertrude C. Starkey by her husband William P. Starkey and her sons Austin C. Starkey and William P. Starkey, Jr., had been dedicated earlier that day with the ser- mon being preached by the Rt. Rev. Wallace J. Gardner, bishop of New Jersey. The Rt. Rev. Frank W. Sterrett, bishop of Bethlehem, presided at the service. He was assisted by the Very Rev. Frederic M. Adams, dean of Trin- ity Cathedral in Trenton, N. J., and the Rev. George M. Bean, University chaplain. President Whitaher awards baccalaureate degrees to 483 seniors The Associations buffet supper Friday night was enjoyed by 321 Above: The ''top brass" in repose. Below: Honor for Pettinos ALUIHII ASSO( THIS year when the Alumni Day committee decided to replace the traditional Alumni Association banquet with the more informal buffet dinner, there were some who felt the venture would fail. However, these fears were quickly dispelled Friday, June 15, as 321 alumni heartily en- dorsed not only the buffet, but the brief program which followed. Retiring Association president Ed- ward A. Curtis, '25, served as toast- master and in turn introduced Col. Percy L. Sadler, director of Athletics, Dr. Harvey A. Neville, dean of engi- neering and head of Lehigh's Institute of Research, and finally President Mar- tin D. Whitaker. These three told alumni of work being done in their respective departments, and of their plans for the future. A highlight of the program was the presentation of Special Awards to men who through the years had brought credit to themselves and to their Uni- versity, and who had been active in Le- high's activities. Those honored in- cluded George F. Pettinos, '87, George S. Baton, '94, Robert E. Laramy, '96, Cadwallader Evans, Jr., '01, Thomas A sugar replica of the Memorial built Tioi mm N. Lacy, '06, and Sylvanus E. Lambert, '89. Only the latter two were unable to attend the dinner. The others re- ceived their leather encased certificates and gold lapel emblems from President Curtis after being presented by Sam T. Harleman, '01, vice-chairman of the Special Awards Committee. A NOTHER feature of the program -'^ was a skit presented by members of 1926 which was climaxed by the presentation of a huge $2600 check to Dr. Whitaker as the Class gift to the Alumni Fund for 1950-51. In addition the Class presented Lehigh with a sec- ond check representing the accrued in- terest on this amount since 1926 was graduated 25 years ago. Not to be outdone the Class of 1901 then presented a check to the Univer- sity for $5,000 as its gift to the Fund for this year. Represented by its presi- dent Tom M. Girdler, 1901 also pre- sented its Class Cup to Al Bryniarski, president of 1951, with instructions that he award the trophy to the Class of 2001 at the fiftieth reunion of his class.

(Complete reports will be found on page twelve.) Principal report was that made by President Martin D. Whitaker who discussed enrollment prospects, faculty sal- aries and University facilities. "As far as enrollment is con- cerned," he said, "prospects are better now than they were three or four months ago, because thanks to some effort in Washington it is now generally recognized that this coun- try needs trained leadership as well as trained military per- sonnel." He pointed out that this country is facing a short- age in engineering graduates. In 1949-50 a total of 50,000 engineers were graduated from colleges, but this year the figure will approximate 38,000, and indications are that even fewer will be graduated in 1952. Lehigh's freshman class for the fall term, Dr. Whitaker reported, will approximate 678 young men as compared to the 650 who were admitted in the fall of 1950. However, some of those admitted may not register this fall for various reasons. President Whitaker also stated that salaries of those graduating this year are very high, and that it is often dif- ficult to convince faculty members that they are being paid enough, particularly when some seniors are starting at high- er salaries than some of their teachers are getting after years of service. Realizing that additional improvement can be made in the salary scale the President said that this year $25,000 of the Alumni Fund has been placed in the budget for faculty salary increases. In discussing facilities Lehigh's administrative head said the problem is to know just where to put a given number of dollars. He agreed that some of the buildings are un- sightly and in need of better lighting equipment, but he reported that to date $75,000 has been spent to improve lighting in various buildings, and that more will be ex- pended in the near future. Approximately $40,000 has been spent to rewire the chemistry building alone. A new steam tunnel cost $24,000 and several hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent for new equipment. Last year the $45,000 received from the Alumni Fund was used for this purpose, he declared. Also of interest to alumni was the report of the Univer- sity's Endowment Committee presented by Theophil H. Mueller, '18, chairman, who stated that Lehigh's total en- dowment now exceeds $9,000,000, and that since the end of the Progress Fund campaign an additional $1,000,000 has been received in gifts and bequests. In addition, Mr. Mueller reported, the University is de- veloping programs to secure funds from corporation gifts, Foundation gifts, and bequests." It is interesting to note," The Board of Directors poses before the meeting he said, "that approximately 62% dowment has come from bequests." of the University's en- 'T^HE Active Membership trophy presented annually to ■■■ the class having the largest percentage of its membership in good standing was awarded to the Class of 1926 with 100% participation. The Memorial Gift trophy presented on the same basis to classes participating in the Memorial Gift program went to the Class of 1950 with 64% partici- pation. A new trophy to be known as the 1901 Memorial Trophy and which will be awarded on a member in good standing basis to classes with a membership of between 20 Active Membership cup goes to '26 with 100% Curtis presents the Memorial Gift trophy to 1950 and 100 went this year to 1901 with a record of 100% participation. Climax of Saturday's meeting was the tellers report in- dicating that George F. A. Stutz, '22, had been elected presi- dent of the Association to succeed Edward A. Curtis, '25, who had served two terms. In relinquishing the gavel Cur- tis thanked alumni for their support during his tenure as president and expressed his appreciation to Dr. Whitaker and his administration for their cooperation. He said that while he would never have the financial means to endow a building for Lehigh, he was grateful for the opportunity he had to serve his alma mater. A new trophy is presented and won by Class of '01 Endowment chairm'n Mueller reports on finances Mr. Stutz, in accepting the presidency, said that he was conscious of the honor bestowed on him, and that he ap- preciated the responsibility the position carries. He asked Lehigh men for their wholehearted cooperation, and pledged himself to do his utmost to further the interests of the University. Alumni hear about the University from Whitaker Harrier presents Petty Flag to Jackson of 1926 I95» tNNERCHOR OOMCSKOm CLASS PARADE IMMEDIATELY following the Alumni picnic Saturday afternoon members of Lehigh's reunioning classes donned parade costumes and assembled on the Library steps for class photographs. Here they were entertained for more than an hour by a colorful championship string band engaged by the Class of 1926, but promptly at 2:30 p.m. all classes moved to assigned places along Packer Hall drive, the parade was formed and at the designated time proceeded to move down the campus to the Flag pole. The route led downhill to Taylor gymnasium, and across the campus via Memorial Walk to the Flag pole, and the classes led by the Fift)' Plus group and 1901, celebrating its fiftieth reunion, made a colorful procession. Most out- standing costume was that displayed by 1926 whose mem- bers wore silver trousers, brown jackets, brown ties decorat- ed with silver goblets, and silver and brown caps. In addi- tion this class, which originated the traditional Goblet song during its undergraduate days, had a large silver Goblet which preceded it in the parade. Once at the Flag pole alumni gathered in a semicircle formation for the presentations which included the 1891 Reunion trophy presented to the class with the largest per- centage of its membership registered, and the David M. Petty Parade Flag, awarded annually to that class making the best appearance in the parade. The Reunion trophy was presented by Henry Kemmer- ling, '91, to Tom M. Girdler, president of the Class of 1901 which had 69% of its members back for the golden anni- versary. Honorable mention for the Petty Flag went to 1921 and 1931, but the championship award was presented by Parade Marshal Robert Harrier, '27, to Joseph Gray Jackson, president of the Class of 1926.

Present were Edward A. Curtis, '25, Clifford F. Lincoln, '11, George R. Broth- ers, '08, Arthur W. Klein, '99, Hugh P. McFadden, '25, H. Randolph Maddox, '21, Leonard M. Horton, '28, George F. A. Stutz, '22, Alfred S. Osboume, '09, and Leonard H. Schick, '37. It was properly moved and seconded that the minutes of the December 2, 1950 meet- ing be approved as summarized by the Ex- ecutive Secretar}'. President Curtis then call- ed for the report of the Executive Secretary which was presented as follows: "Last June when the Association's By- Laws w-ere changed to enable a unification of fund raising procedure, most of us rea- lized that there would be a certain period of trial and error until the new program would become effective. It was felt that widi the combination of annual alumni dues with the Alumni Fund, and with many men still pay- ing pledges made to the Progress Fund, the first year of the new plan would not be too productive. This was the general opinion, but there were a few optimistic alumni who predicted that the new system would have immediate results. "That this small group was right is best evidenced by the fact that from June 1, 1950 to June 10, 1951 more than 5212,195.85, representing gifts from Lehigh men to va- rious programs, has been handled by the alumni office. Of this amount 5112,486.14 went directly to the University as Progress Fund receipts. The balance represents 510,- 486.48 as subscriptions to the Alumni Bul- letin; 523,600.50 as contributions to the Student Grant program and 566,108.87 as gifts made directly to the Lehigh Alumni Fund. "The latter two figures establish new rec- ords of giving by Lehigh alumni. Best pre- vious year for Student Grants was 1949-50 when 512,723.33 was received, while to find a comparable year for the Alumni Fund one has to go back 20 years to 1930-3 J when 575,903.00 was given to the University through the Fund. Until this year the best record for the Fund since 1931 was in 1937- 38 when 561,504.92 was contributed. "The Bulletin, too, has shown progress this year, with a total circulation on June 9 of 5,412. As will be shown in the Publica- tions Committee report, changes made in the magazine have met with general approval, and many of them will be continued as reg- ular features. Highlight for Bulletin editors during the year was the annoimcement by a nationally known magazine consultant, en- gaged by the American Alumni Coimcil to assist alumni editors, that the Bulletin rated among the top ten magazines of its kind in the country. "Alumni club activity continued at a fast pace during the year with all but one club 12 holding at least one meeting. The majority of recognized clubs have met at least twice, and many have met even more often. Motion pictures of 1950 football games and speak- ers from the campus have been featured. A new club has been formed in the Bergen- Passaic area and two rather inactive groups have been revitalized. It is inteerstmg to note that of the new clubs formed during the past two years, all of them are growing and developing programs of interest to alumni. As in the past, the clubs played a vital part in the success of the Student Grant cam- paign last fall, and now plans are being made to have clubs assist more actively in the procurement of new students for Lehigh. "There is much more that could be includ- ed in this report, but it would only be a duplication of the committee reports which follow. Therefore, I will close by expressing smcere thanks to all of you who so loyally supported the Alumni Association's program during the past year." Next report that of the Coimcil of Class Agents was accepted as follows: "■We are now in the closing days of the 1950-51 Alumni Fund campaign, one in which the Council of Lehigh Class Agents has shown increased interest and to good effect. "The annual meeting of the Council of Lehigh Class Agents was held in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, October 14, 1950. Fifty-three classes out of 68 w-ith class agents were rep- resented. President David M. Petty, '09, pre- sided. Remarks were made by Dr. Martin D. ■Whitaker, Edward A. Curtis, '25, president of the Alumni Association, Mr. Pettj' and Mr. Harleman. It was stated that cash gifts from 800 alumni in the '49-50 Fimd cam- paign amounted to $46,032.03. This money was turned over to the University and ap- plied to the purchase and installation of a steam boiler and a turbo-electro generator set for use in Packard Laboraton'. "Starting last January the writer inaugur- ated a series of regional meetings widi class agents. The first round covered those class agents residing in New York Cit>', Newark, N. J., Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, and re- sulted in personal contacts with 20 class agents. Following these out-of-town meet- ings, a series of four similiar meetings was held in Bethlehem, attended by a total of 29 class agents. 'We were thus able to discuss the needs for the Fund with 49 class agents out of 67 now ser\ing. The absentees were well informed of the results of the various meetings and many of them have been seen personally or have been talked to at various times over the telephone. It was pointed out at ever)' meeting that they were to stress "continuity of giving " and that this year's aim was "A Gift to Lehigh from Every Le- high Man." They were all asked to strength- en their class organizations. Twent)'-five classes have a total of 407 committeemen at work assisting the class agents in contactmg alumni in various areas. "The class of 1951 has set up its class committee of 30 men imder the leadership of John J. MacDonald. This committee was chosen by Albert F. Br)-niarski, Jr., presi- dent of the class of 1951. A meeting of this group was held in Bethlehem, Pa., May 21, 1951- Remarks were made by Dr. Martin D. Whitaker, David M. Petty and Sam T. Harle- man. Present also was E. 'Webster Dann, president of the class of 1952. "The Fund campaign runs to June 30, 1951 and it is expected that over 560,000 will be given by more than 1,100 .alumni and 1,900 class memorial gift men (1941- 1950) for a grand total of 3,000 donors as compared with 2,327 last year. Four meetings of the Executive Commit- tee of the Council were held during the year." Committee reports were presented follow- ing approval of the above mentioned reports. These follow: ALUMNI CLUBS "With one exception all of Lehigh's alum- ni clubs have met at least once this year, and the majorit)' have held two and three meet- ings at which Universit>' or Alumni Associa- tion representatives have been present. The program established last year of forming subsidiary clubs in metropolitan areas has been continued, with the establishment of branch groups in Glen Rock, N. J., and in Hartford, Conn. Acting on a request from the Board of Directors, the Committee studied a proposal made by the Home Club for the strengthen- ing of alumni clubs throughout the country, and after making certain revisions it ap- proved an organizational plan which will be submitted to the directors for their consid- eration. This proposal follows: "The purpose of the following is intended to put into action the basic principles rec- ommended by the Lehigh Home Club, add- ing certain features considered to be of value and to establish a means of accom- plishing these objectives. "1. Establish an organization to be known as The Congress of Lehigh Alunmi Clubs. "2. This Congress of Lehigh Alumni Clubs is composed of one officer and two other members as representatives of each Lehigh Alumni Club. "3. The aim and purpose of this Congress shall be to stimulate Alumni Club activi- ties, and thereby strengthening existing Clubs, assist in the organization of new Clubs wherever feasible; to promote the welfare of Lehigh Universit)' and the pro- gram of the Alumni Association, particul- arly with respect to Admission, Scholarships, Placement and Athletic programs, and in general to advance the prestige of Lehigh Universit)'. "4. The Congress shall meet in Bethle- hem in April of each year in order to plan Alumni Club program activities, and to con- fer with Universit)' and Alumni Association officials on matters of mutual interest. The Congress may also meet at other limes if desirable." Once again alumni clubs were called on to assist the Alumni Student Grant Collec- tion Committee in raising funds for schol- arships, and a large share of the credit for the campaign's success in 1950-51 must go to those clubs which cooperated so whole- heartedly. The Committee was also very much in- terested in cooperating with the University's admissions office in contacting qualified stu- dents interested in Lehigh. A meeting was held with Clarence B. Campbell, director of admissions, at which time preliminary plans were discussed for the extension of this co- operation among all alumni clubs. Complete details will be forthcoming at a later date. ALUMNI DAY Acceding to demands from many alumni, the general reunion committee has endeav- oured to make this year's program as infor- mal as possible, with more time than ever being devoted to reunion classes and their activities. Considerable thought was given to the Friday night program, particularly since a great deal of sentiment has been expressed in some quarters against the formal type program of the past. Therefore, after con- sultation with the various class chairmen the committee agreed to experiment by replac- ing the formal banquet with the Alumni Buffet Supper and by modifying the program as much as possible. By adopting this type of program the committee believes it has achieved two major goals — a 20% reduction in the price of tickets and a streamlined pro- gram which will be of general interest and yet brief enough to enable reunion classes to sponsor informal parties later that eve- ning. In recent years the annual alumni lun- cheon given by the University has been held in Grace Hall but, in keeping with the in- formality theme, the committee has planned an Alumni Picnic which will be served from Lamberton Hall, Lehigh's dining center. Tables and chairs will be placed at advan- tageous spots on the campus, and the Drown Hall lounge will be available for those who desire to eat indoors. In the event of rain plans have been made to hold the picnic in Grace Hall. In the past the annual business meeting of the Association has been held in Packard auditorium, but this year it will be held in the large classroom of Coppee Hall. This should accommodate all who attend, and at the same time it is located in the centre of Alumni Day activity, being close to class headquarters in Packer Hall, and to Lam- berton Hall, where the picnic will be served. In planning for this year's reunion the committee agreed that it might be well to end the traditional parade of classes in Tay- lor Stadium, and that after the presentation of awards alumni might enjoy watching a baseball game or a track meet between Le- high and a selected opponent, preferably Lafayette. Efforts to make arrangements for a contest of this type failed due to schedul- ing difficulties and the expense involved. Therefore, the parade this year will end at the campus flagpole, but the committee rec- ommends that the group responsible for the 1952 Alumni Day make ever)' effort to in- clude a varsity athletic contest in its pro- gram. A-WARDS The Special Awards Committee, headed by Robert S. Taylor, Jr., '25, has recom- mended and the Board of Directors of the Association has approved that awards this year be made to the following Lehigh alum- ni: George F. Pettinos, '87; Sylvanus E. Lambert, '89; George S. Baton, '94; Robert E. Laramy, '96; Cadwallader Evans, Jr., '01 and Thomas N. Lacy, '06.

In 1949, 58% of the class parti- cipated, and in 1950, 60% of the class par- ticipated. These figures for 1951, with 360 men par- ticipating in the Class Insurance Program at this date, represent 58% of the entire class. The Class of 1951 has almost matched the record-breaking performance by the Class of 1950, the preceding year. Again their almost unbelievable amount of hard work and sac- rificial service has gone into the promotion of the Class Insurance Program by the Class of 1951. For this record special credit should go to Thomas A. Curtis, who took over as chairman of the Class Memorial Gift Com- mittee when Edward W. Davidheiser drop- ped out of school and therefore had to re- linquish this position. Other men whose work has made this record possible and who should be singled out for special recogni- tion are Albert E. Brj'niarski, president of the Class of 1951; Richard M. Elrick, frat- ernit}' chairman; Paul H. Fett and Thomas H. Keel, dormitory co-chairmen, and Henry J. Enright, town chairman. The outstanding job which Richard W. Fehnel did in the area of publicity should also come in for special commendation. UNDERGRADUATE CONTACT Continuing the policy established last year, the president of the Association did not appoint an Undergraduate Contact Com- mittee this year but, instead, selected mem- bers of the Board and other key alumni to meet with undergraduate leaders appointed by Arcadia, student governing council. A dinner meeting was held at the Bethlehem Club, at which time alumni became better acquainted with undergraduate activities and problems, and at the same time students learned more about the Association's role in the development of a greater University. In addition to this meeting with student leaders, alumni representatives conferred with individual undergraduates on numerous occasions, spoke at various society meetings, sponsored the annual freshman class adop- tion program, the Intramural Singing Con- test, the band contest for new Lehigh songs and marches, and arranged a concert in At- lantic City for the Glee Club. PLACEMENT As of June 1, 335 of the 509 seniors ex- pected to graduate this year have been placed, according to records obtained from the University's Placement Office. Inquiries have been received from more than 550 con- cerns, and during the year 299 interviewing programs were conducted. The Placement breakdown for the Class of 1951 follows: Curricula Number Placed Chemistry 11 7 Chemical Engineering 45 41 Civil 34 26 Electrical 6A 51 Engineering Physics 14 14 Industrial 39 31 Mechanical 57 52 Metallurgical 16 15 Mining 10 7 Arts 93 38 Business 126 43 Graduate placement has continued its de- velopment during the past year and its suc- cess is evidenced by the fact that of 250 forms on file a year ago today there are only 37 remaining. Mr. Everett Teal, director ofi placement, reports that current conditions make it fairly easy to place alumni with a technical background, but that it is still dif- ficult to place arts and business men, par- ticularly those seeking the higher salaried positions. LIBRARY The following alumni and friends of Le- high University presented volumes to the Librar}' during the past year: Miss Elizabeth English Stewart, executrix of the Estate of the late Samuel E. Berger, '89, whose library of classical literature we received a year ago: the illustrated portfolio of The Hoi) Experiment by Miss 'Violet Oakley, as a memorial to Mr. Berger. Dr. Gilbert E. Doan, '19 Robert B. Honeyman, Jr.. '20: seven early Bethlehem Prints. David L. R. Guthrie, 47 Frank N. Kneas, '98 Charles W. Lueders, '04 Dean Philip M. Palmer David A. Randall, '28 Edward If". Rosenbaum, '48 Armando Sanchez, '00 The parents and friends of the late Rob- ert Jacques Seidler, '52: a fund for the pur- chase of books in Religion. . ir. P. Star key, '00 A. P. Steckel, '99 Ralph G. Steinhardt, '40 Dr. Harvey Bassler, '08 and Sc.D. '45. The Bassler Collection, given by bequest, and consisting of approximately 15,000 vol- umes valued at $25,000, is of great signi- ficance to the newly-instituted curriculum in Conservation. The collection deals wholly with the Natural Sciences, with particular emphasis upon the geographical distribution of plants, birds, m.ammals and insects in South America. If the collection is now built up so that its potential can be realized it should attract scholars in several important branches of natural historj' and ecology. PUBLICATIONS During the past year members of the Pub- lications Committee have been in close con- tact with the Alumni Bulletin staff, serving in an advisory capacity on numerous occa- sions, and the Committee feels that the As- sociation's publications this year have main- tained the same high standards for which they have been noted in the past. Proof of this is evidenced by the fact that the Bulle- tin has been rated among the top 10 alumni publications in the country by Otto M. For- kert, nationally known magazine consultant engaged by the American Alumni Council to confer with alumni editors at district meetings. The Bulletin cover illustrations used this year of prominent faculty members, together with a brief biographical sketch, have met with such wide approval both on campus and among alumni subscribers that the Com- mittee recommends their continuance for another year. Editorially the Bulletin con- tinues to keep alumni informed not only of class and campus activities, but by tlie fre- quent publication of faculty written articles on topics of timely interest it is giving its readers a broader scope of reading than that usually found in alumni publications. In making its report the Committee feels it should point out that the cost of publish- ing will continue to increase greatly during the coming year and that magazines of the Bulletin type may have difficulty in getting adequate materials at reasonable prices. Also there is a possibility that retrenching by many industrial concerns may result in de- creased advertising revenue for the Bulletin. Publishing materials for the 1951-52 fiscal year were ordered many months ago, but even so delivery prices will be considerably higher. The Committee does not feel that an increase in advertising rates is advisable at this time, but it does recommend that an increase in subscription price be considered. No increase in subscription price has been made for more than 12 years, and the Com- mittee feels that a study should be made immediately and that the rate should be in- creased proportionately to the rise in produc- tion costs. STUDENT GRANT COLLECTIONS Aided by the experience gained in 1949- 50, the Grants Collection Committee organ- ized its campaign early in the fall of 1950 and once again availed itself of services of- fered by various alumni clubs. These groups, aided by the Committee, conducted personal campaigns in their respective areas, and their whole-hearted cooperation played a vital role in the success of the drive. An innovation this year was the formation of a Century Club, comprised of alumni who contributed SI 00 or more to Grants. A spe- cial appeal was sent to selected alumni and the results were so gratifying that the Com- 14 mittee recommends the expansion of the plan next year. There's an old saying that nothing suc- ceeds like success, and the completion of Lehigh's first undefeated football season last fall proved the point as many alumni, con- vinced at last that the Student Grant pro- gram would produce results, sent in their gifts. The team's success, plus the con- scientious efforts of many campaign workers, produced a record breaking number of do- nors and contributions. As of June 9, the date this report was written, 1140 men had given $23,600.50 to Alumni Student Grants. This speaks well for the program's future, and it is hoped that the same alumni, plus many more, will continue to support the project in 1951-52 as well as they did this year. STUDENT GRANTS At present 20 men, not including seniors who graduate this June, are receiving aid from Alumni Student Grant scholarships. The recipients are divided among undergrad- uate classes as follows: Year of Graduation Number of Students 1952 11 1953 6 1954 3 The Student Grant Committee met this year with the University's Committee on Scholarships to discuss procedures to be fol- lowed in handling Grant applications now that the National Collegiate Athletic Asso- ciation's so called "sanity" code has been discontinued. This group also discussed the limit to be placed on Student Grant awards and after conferring with administrative of- ficers of the University and after reviewing Eastern Collegiate Conference regulations it was agreed that the top Grant may equal the maximum undergraduate scholarship of- fered by the University, which amounts to $1,000 per annum. It was also agreed that in the event of a student's being awarded a University scholarship it will be permissible for the Student Grant Committee to make a supplementary award provided the com- bined total awarded does not exceed $1,000 per year. Pleased with results of the Grants Collec- tion campaign the Committee at its meeting authorized the expenditure of $10,000 for new awards this coming year. However, it did express the opinion that in view of cur- rent international situations it would be well not to spend the total amount granted unless absolutely necessary. The Committee has made Grants to stu- dents now in college which result in the commitments outlined below: Year 1951-52 $11,441 Year 1952-53 5,155 Year 1953-54 1,725 Total $18,321 The financial statement for Alumni Stu- dent Grants follows: July 1, 1950 to May 31, 1951 $ 5,003.21 — Bank Balance June 30, 1950 23,498.50 — Deposits to 5/31/51 inclusive Distribution of Contributions by Districts 1947-48 1948-49 Bethlehem $2,512 $1,764 Athletic Dept.

This is the best record since the program was established in 1939. The highest pre- vious total was 1949-50 when 889 alumni gave $12,723.33.

This is in ac- cordance with Association By-Laws. On motion of directors Osbourne and Lin- coln the Association Treasurer was author- ized to sell United States Treasury bonds 232 21/2% 64/69 and 67/72 and to pur- chase bonds with a maturity date of 62/67. It was generally agreed that these would be a better investment for Association funds. The Board concurred with the report of the Alumni Day committee that a baseball game with Lafayette be arranged for future Alumni Days, and authorized the Executive Secretary to make known its recommenda- tion to the proper authorities. Motion to this effect was made by directors Lincoln and Horton. The Publications Committee recommenda- tion that Bulletin subscription rates be in- creased was discussed at length, and the mat- ter was referred back to the Committee with the request that a full report be made in the very near future. The Board agreed that the rates should be increased, but preferred that the mechanics of the plan be worked out by the Committee. The Board also rec- ommended that an intensive circulation cam- paign be put into effect as soon as possible. This too is to be handled by the Publica- tions Committee. On motion by directors Maddox and Lin- coln the Board approved a recommendation that a letter of appreciation be .sent to Sam- uel D. Gladding, '11, chairman of the Stu- dent Grants Collection Committee, for the splendid work his group did during the past year to raise more than $23,000 for the Stu- dent Grant Program. The Board also unanimously approved a recommendation that a resolution be spread upon the minutes in appreciation of the tremendous work done by Edward A. Curtis, '25, as President of the Alumni Association, for the past two years. It was agreed that no individual has spent more time in furthering Lehigh's interests than the retiring presi- dent, and the Board wanted its sentiments known to all alumni. The matter of forming an Alumni Clubs Congress was next discussed and approved. The Alumni Clubs committee will be em- powered to act in completing plans for this organization. A report of a special committee appointed last December to consider the erection of a suitable memorial to Lehigh's first unde- feated football team, was accepted and on the recommendation of the committee chair- man the project was dropped and the com- mittee dismissed. The Executive Secretary was authorized to mimeograph copies of the By-Laws for distribution to interested alumni. It was felt that it was unnecessary to have the By-Laws printed since the demand for copies is usual- ly very small. At the request of the Class of 1901 the Board approved a recommendation calling for the establishment of a third Active Mem- bership Trophy to be known as the 1901 Class Memorial Trophy which will be award- ed in the future to that class, with a mem- bership of between 20-100 living members, which has the largest percentage of its mem- bership active during the fiscal year. The trophy will be purchased and duly inscribed by the Class of 1901. There being no further business the meet- ing adjourned at 10:35 p.m. 15 SPECIAl, MEETEVG A special meeting of the Board of Direc- tors of the Alumni Association was called to order Saturday, June 16 at 10:15 a.m. and after a brief discussion the Directors au- thorized the Executive Secretary to commun- icate with the Director of Athletics to pro- test the scheduling of night football games for Lehigh. It was the consensus of opinion that Lehigh's reputation would not be en- hanced by participating in contests of this t)'pe. The meeting adjourned at 10:30 a.m. AlilTJlxi ASSOCIATION MEETING The annual business meeting of the Alum- ni Association was held Saturday June 16 at 10:30 a.m. in Coppee Hall with President Edward A. Curtis presiding. Following the approval of the minutes of the June 17, 1950 meeting as published in the Alumni Bulletin, President Curtis ap- pointed Alfred E. Forstall, '83, Joseph A. Maurer, '36, and Robert J. Desh, '09, as tellers to count the ballots. The Executive Secretary's report, financial reports, and reports of standing committees were accepted as presented. (For detailed reports see minutes of Board of Directors meeting published elsewhere in this issue.) The report of the Council of Class Agents was discussed by David M. Petty, '09, Coun- cil president, who explained the operational procedure of the fund program, stating that more alumni must participate if the fund is to reach its goal of providing a minimum of §150,000 per year to Lehigh. At the request of President Curtis, Alfred 'V. Bodine, '15, a corporate trustee and chair- man of the University's buildings and grounds committee, reported on the work be- ing done to maintain and improve Lehigh's physical plant. He said that for approximate- ly 20 years very little money was spent on maintenance, and that within the past four years, the University has tried to catch up on much of the deferred maintenance. He stated that great improvements have been made, but that much more can be done providing the funds are available to finance this work. Eugene G. Grace, '99, president of the Board of Trustees, was then called on for a few remarks, and congratulated alumni and their officers on the work done during the year. He stated that he felt this was the best alumni meeting he had attended in many years and that it spoke well for the Univer- sity's future. President Martin D. "Whitaker then made a brief report to alumni and paid tribute to the "highly competent men" on the Univer- sity's Board of Trustees who have done so much for Lehigh. He also stated that it was a pleasure to have worked with Edward A. Curtis and his alumni administration during the past two years. In discussing enrollment figures. Dr. 'Whitaker gave the following average enroll- ment figures for the University: 1946-47 2769 1947-48 2863 1948-49 2824 1949-50 2806 1950-51 2596 He also said that enrollment prospects are 16 better now than they were three or four months ago, because thanks to some effort made in 'Washington it is now generally rec- ognized that this country needs trained lead- ership as well as trained military personnel. He pointed out that this country is facing a shortage in engineering graduates. In 1949- 50 a total of 50,000 engineers were gradu- ated from colleges, but this year the figure will approximate 38,000 and indications are that even fewer will be graduated in 1952. Lehigh's freshman class, for the fall term, he said, will approxiate 678 young men com- pared to the 650 who were admitted in the fall of 1950. However, some of those ad- mitted may not register for various reasons. President 'Whitaker also reported that sal- aries of those graduating this year are very high, and that it is often difficult to convince faculty members that they are being paid enough, particularly when some seniors start at higher salaries than some of their teachers are getting after years of service. Realizing that additional improvement can be made in the salary scale. Dr. 'Whitaker said that this year $25,000 of the Alumni Fund has been placed in the budget for faculty salary in- creases. In discussing the facilities of the Univer- sity, President Whitaker said the problem is to know just where to put a given number of dollars. He agreed that some of the buildings are unsightly and in need of bet- ter lighting equipment, but he reported that to date 575,000 has been spent to im- prove lighting in various buildings, and that more will be expended in the future. Approximately S40,000 has been spent to rewire the chemistry building alone. A new steam tunnel cost 524,000 and several hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent for new equipment. Last year the 545,000 received from the Alumni Fund was used for this purpose, he said. Next report was presented by Theophil H. Mueller, '18, a corporate trustee and chairman of the University's Endowment Committee, who stated that Lehigh's total endowment has now passed the 59,000,000 mark, and that since the conclusion of the Progress Fund an additional $1,000,000 has been received as gifts and bequests. Mr. Mueller said that in addition to gifts to the Alumni Fund, the University is developing programs to secure funds from corporation gifts (last year Lehigh received 565,000) ; Foundation Gifts, and Bequests. Approximately 62% of Lehigh's endow- ment has come from bequests he said. Alumni then observed a moment of si- lence in memory of the 98 Lehigh men who had died since the last annual meet- ing. The Association's Active Membership cup was then awarded to the Class of 1926 with a 100% participation; while the Active Membership trophy for Class Insurance groups went to the Class of 1950 with 64%. The 1901 Memorial Trophy, presented to classes with a membership between 20 and 100, was presented to the Class of 1901 with a 100% participation. The report of the tellers presented by A. E. Forstall revealed that George F. A. Stutz, Jr., '22, had been elected president for 1951- 52, and that H. Randolph Maddox, '21, had been selected as senior vice president. Others elected are James M. Straub, '20, junior vice- president, and Leonard M. Horton, '28, alumnus trustee. In relinquishing the gavel Mr. Curtis thanked alumni for their support during the past year, expressed his appreciation to Dr. 'Whitaker and his administration for their cooperation, and stated that while he may never have the financial means to endow a building for Lehigh, he was grateful for the opportunity he had to serve his alma mater. Mr. Stutz, in accepting the presidency, stated that he was conscious of the honour bestowed on him, and that he appreciates the responsibility the job carries. He praised the retiring president and said that Mr. Cur- tis had set a new standard of accomplishment for the Alumni Association. In conclusion he asked alumni for their wholehearted co- operation during the coming year, and pledged himself to do his utmost to further the interests of the University. There being no further business the meet- ing adjourned at 12:15 p.m. THE HONOURED DEAD Thomas 'W. Brown '78, Alexander Bon- not '87, 'William S. Jones '87, Garrett B. Linderman '87, Eduardo P.

STACKHOUSE 111 Park Avenue, Greenwich, Conn. The alumni reunion has come and gone. 1886 made a brave attempt at a last reunion, but distance and the in- firmities of age worked against us. The writer and his good wife were there, and Mrs. Reist, who was the wife of that stalwart of '86, Henry G. Reist, was with us. Kitty and Phaon Grossart, the two children of Louis, were also there, and altogether we had enough to bring up old memories and the glories of '86. We attended the alumni dinner on Friday evening, the luncheon on Sat- urday, and the Fifty-Plus dinner on Saturday evening, so time was not heavy on our hands. The meeting of old friends and the reviving of old memories were quite the order of the day. We had a number of letters from old '86ers and some recent photos which we are sending in to the Bulletin in the hope that they may find space now and then for some of them to touch up our memories. Stevens writes me that he is walk- ing a mile or two twice a day and that he has recently been appointed Tempo- rary Honorary Secretary of the London Housewives' Association, whatever that may be, but it all reveals that Stevens is still moving rather rapidly. Har^^-i said this would be the first reunion he has ever missed, but it was felt best to pass this one up on account of his health. James Millholland wrote that he and Elsie would not be able to make it on account of previous engagements, but they were happy to know that the spirit of '86 still marches on. Mrs. Veeder was not able to come on account of the illness of her daugh- ter, and Elizabeth Siebert wrote that their stepmother passed away in her sleep on Sunday morning. May 20. Dr. Mark Howe has been having some trouble with his eyes, and this is a great trial to one so active in literary pursuits, but here's hoping that every- thing soon clears up for our good friend Dr. Mark. You would not expect or want these '86 notes to go on and on. Shall we adjourn their appearance sine die? However, we were most grateful for many expressions of appreciation from old-timers at the reunion. HOWARD A. FOERING 1851 Nazareth Pike, Bethlehem, Pa. It is with much pleasure that we have heard from Tomkinson, through the kindness of his daughter. Though physically incapacitated to a limited extent, he is doing quite well and enjoying television. Sherman, who ought to be retired, is almost as busy as in his prime. He has just reorganized his firm with the title Sherman, Taylor & Sleeper. Ever loyal John Iiitch was present on Alumni Day — the only one in ad- dition to your correspondent. Xeumeyer, quite ill, is holding his own. T. C. RODERICK Wahkonsa Hotel, Fort Dodge, Iowa While I am excused, for this issue, from writing for the Bulletin, the habit of getting out the news for the col- umn gets to be something of a sport- ing proposition, and of course we au- thors like to see our names at the head of the column even though there is very little of moment in it. I have, however, two communica- tions which were a pleasure to receive. The first one was from Bert Beck, '96, complimenting me on the review of facts and exploits of our '93 football team. Do you know, I don't seem to understand how a professor of chemis- try would know so much about flatter- ing a man and Inflating his ego in so few words. Thanks, Bert, for your card. Then on top of that comes a letter from "Romeo" Houston, '9 5, christen- ed Edgar Alonzo but remembered af- fectionately by all who knew him as Romeo, a name he acquired because our other tackle, Jim Bndd, had sung the part of Juliet in one of our Mustard and Cheese productions. So naturally our tackles became Romeo and Juliet. The play which Beck first wrote me about, in which we scored on Pennsyl- vania, was a quick opening dive be- tween tackle and guard, Romeo and Trafton. Romeo had as an opponent a man who outweighed him 40 pounds and was hard to move. In this play, in- stead of an opening between tackle and guard, Romeo found his opponent, Re«se, I believe, blocking the opening, so he crowded him over against his guard and left me a clear path between tackle and end which I took, and the touchdown resulted. Many times in our toughest games Romeo, whose knees had been hurt in previous games, would find it diificult to walk between plays, but he would get up, wobble around, stretch his legs, and get in his position and most capa- bly fill it. HE WAS A TACKLE. Romeo inquired about the members of our '93 team who are still alive, and as far as I know they are Wooden, Houston, Best and myself. Johnnie Best was living in Oakland, Calif., when the 1947 Directory was publish- ed, and that is my information on him. You know, when I get to thinking about that team and its members I get to wondering how the present day teams would stack up against such conditions which we accepted as nor- mal. Oh well, "distance (and years) lend enchantment to the view." George Baton and Bob Smith were the only ones from our class who regis- tered on the campus for Alumni Day. George, by the way, was one of several alumni receiving the Association's Spe- cial Award this year. Congratulations! FRANCIS LEE CASTLEMAN Whitney Road, University Campus Storrs, Conn. I am writing this from Philadelphia, where I am visiting, having driven down from Bethlehem after stopping over for the alumni reunion weekend. The alumni dinner, luncheon in the open on the campus, parade, etc., "Fif- ty-Plus" dinner, all came off success- JULY, 1951 19 fully and all just as planned. We had three perfect days for these activities, at which we met old classmates, old friends of other classes, enjoyed dis- cussing the present, reviewed and re- newed the spirit of the past, and some- times attempted to peek into the fu- ture. On Sunday some of us attended the services in connection with the conse- cration of the new altar in the Packer Memorial Church (known in our day as the "chapel"). This altar is a mag- nificent piece of ecclesiastical art and adds greatly to the beauty of the church. It was given as a memorial to Gertrude C. Starkey by her husband, William Paul Starkey, a distinguished Lehigh alumnus. The high dignitaries of the Church and the combined choirs of the Nativ- ity and Trinity Episcopal churches took part in this ceremony. The wonderful music, the pageantry in connection with the ritual, the reading and inton- ing of the great liturgy of the Church, all combined to make this a very im- pressive ceremony. The general fabric of the church has also had a complete renovation, the first for many years. I think anyone who studies both the Interior and ex- terior will agree that it is one of the most beautiful churches in America. When we were in college it was merely the "chapel" where we had to go every morning at 8 a.m. and on Sundays at 11 a.m., and cutting "chap- el" was just as serious an offense as cutting a class. Our viewpoints have of course been mellowed by the pass- ing of time, but in attending this cere- mony we all had brought home to us the inspirational value, even in our college days, of such a beautiful struc- ture. In looking back to those days we recalled some of the famous clergy we sat under. Elwood Worcester was al- ways impressive, both for his chapel discourses and in his teaching as a member of the faculty. He afterwards achieved great distinction and his "Life's Adventure," an autobiography, gives an interesting picture of the Le- high of that day. In addition to the many bishops who addressed us Bishop Rulison was often with us. Many of us recall the good Bishop delivering in his melodious voice and incomparable literary style his famous sermon on the good Samaritan from the text, "A certain man went down from Jerusa- lem to Jericho and fell among thieves, etc." In looking at the church from the outside, with its main steeples crowned with the symbol of the Church, smaller pinnacles crowned with a fleur-de-lis, the gargoyles on the sides of the main tower, I should say that the architec- ture is of the French-Gothic type. If anyone desires to challenge this, I should be pleased to hear from him. There also arose in my mind the ques- tion as to who was the creator or arch- itect of this beautiful structure. So after much searching around both out- side and inside I found cut in the stone just inside the entrance on the left, "Addison Hutton, Architect, 1887." There are still living many who were in college at that time and who could possibly throw some light on Addison Hutton's career and also give some in- teresting information on the original dedication as well as give us the orig- inal cost of the building. I should be pleased to hear from anyone who can give such information. As to other activities, you will doubtless find them fully described in other places in this issue. The following of '9 5 were present: Bastress, Iioeb, Rights and your hum- ble servant. WILLIAM STEWART AVARS 269 Leonia Avenue, Leonia, N. J. Ofiicial word has reached me that this column is due on 24 June. The letter is dated 12 June and got to me on the 2 0th. Needing certain data from Bethlehem before I could write the column it is a dead certainty that the specified deadline will not be met. However, I now have the information I needed and I have a hunch that the column will appear as usual. On Friday morning, the 15th George Yates and I set out for Bethlehem and arrived there safely in the early after- noon. We attended the Alumni Dinner that evening — if you can call it a din- ner, it being a "buffet supper" sort of affair. At the price charged, $4.00, I think the caterer must have made a very handsome profit. The eating part of the dinner did not take very long, and then we had the speeches. I cannot recall who did the talking or what was talked about; an early speaker got going on athletics and by the time he was through, so was I. Maybe I missed something really important, but if I did, I suppose I can read about it else- where. I once heard a dinner story in England that I always recall on these occasions. After considerable eating and drinking, the vice chairman at one end of the table called out to the chair- man at the other: "I say, 'Arry, shall we 'ave the speeches now, or shall we let them enjoy themselves a bit long- er?" Saturday we went over and register- ed and partook of the alumni luncheon, also a self-service event. Not being interested in the pee-rade, either as a participant or a spectator, I found a quite comfortable couch in Drown Hall and had a good nap. This nap, please be advised, is rigidly prescribed by my physician, also certain potent tablets and capsules intended to remedy some of the circulatory failings of advancing years. I remembered to take with me a supply of one of these medicaments but forgot the other; I am none the worse for it, so far as I can tell, and I am not going to the doctor to make sure. Yates didn't miss anything, how- ever; he is a lot tougher than I am. By 7 p.m. on Saturday we went to our own Back-Every-Year-Club dinner. The Fifty-Plus group included men from 1883 to 1900. 20 LEHIGH ALUMNI BULLETIN and, to me, that is the sole reason for making this annual trek to Bethle- hem; that, and attending the morning service the next daj" In the old Mora- vian Church. I did not get a list of all who were at the B.E.Y.C. dinner. The alumni office has kindly sent me a list of all who registered down to and including '99: but how many were at the dinner, I don't know accurately. I tried to count them at the table but I don't think I was very close; I made it roughly some 30. Those from '96 were Ayars, Buvinger, Enscoe, Laramy and Sprague. Yates was there, too, but is credited to '9 7. The list I have here is as follows: Forstall, 'S3, Stackhonse. 'S6. Petti- nos, 'ST, Foering and Litch, '90, Cor- nelius, 'S9, Faniariss and Kenimerling, '91, Brady, '92, Baton and R. E. Smith, '94, Bastress, Castlenian, Loeb, and Rights, '95, '9 6 as above, Hale and Yates, '97, Borhek and Wiegner, '98, and Ivlein and Steckel, '9 9. There were also at the dinner several of the "un- attached" who are always welcome, like Lou Girdler, "03. The Class of '26, which is supposed to carry on after '9 6 is no more, did not attend this year; it was having its own special 25th re- union. Having presided at these din- ners for many years. Bob Laramy is trying to break in an understudy. Last year it was our beloved "Pop" Pen- nington; this year it was "Young Pop" Klein, '99. The names above add up to 26, including Lou Girdler, so my rough count of 3 may not be so far off at that. I was much pleased that no booze was served — but there would- n't be, of course, if Bob managed the affair. This not only makes for peace and quiet but keeps the expense down. I believe that a new excise bill sets the tax on alcoholic beverages at some- thing like $12 a gallon. And while I don't know today what it costs to make pure ethyl alcohol, I do remember that one of the DuPont chemists told me about 19 20 that it could be made for about 14 cents a gallon. We have a great lot of sacred cows in Washing- ton, but the greatest of these is al- cohol. It is a wonderful and versatile fluid, a perfect fuel, a marvelous sol- vent and cleansing agent. It can be made not only from grain, fruit juices, sugars, starches, potatoes and other food stuffs, but from many waste ma- terials and by-products. And during the time I was employed in Seattle, there was a French company down in Port Townsend which was making pure "grain" alcohol from sawdust. I knew a lot about this company because its chief engineer was at one time a stu- dent of mine in Pratt Institute. But poor old C::H;OH! Just because of the damfools who drink it to excess, it is practically driven out of the market by taxation. And so much is this reve- nue needed by Uncle Sam that I do not suppose we shall ever see alcohol given its rightful place in the nation's economy. I have heard recently that great quantities are now being made and sold by enterprising moon-shiners. One writer estimated that more of this illicit fluid was being sold than that made by the regular and tax-paying distillers. A friend of mine who lived for some years in a large city in Tenn- essee told me that this "white mule" could be so easily and cheaply pur- chased that she used it as a fuel for a small stove under her tea kettle. However, I feel that this monograph has already run over its allotted space and should be brought to an end. I am still hoping that a letter from one of you may manage to reach me one of these days. How about it? POP PENXIXGTON'S COLUMN by H. E. HALE 1165 5th Ave., Xew York 27, :N". Y. Well, the Lehigh Alumni Reunion of June 15 and 16, 1951, has come and gone with a bang. As Len Schick says in his May letter, "Warm weather has brought spring to South Mountain and the magnolias and forsythia blend- ing with green foliage make a truly beautiful picture." I\Iany people have told me that Lehigh's campus is one ot the most beautiful they have seen. Those of us who saw it June 15 and 16 agree. There were 63 5 alumni registered of all classes back for the reunion. Fifty-Plus had 3 6 back, and the class of 1901, for their 50th reunion, had 16 back. The informal buft'et supper Fri- day night in Grace Hall was a great success. Teece Yates and I ganged up v.ith Bones Castlenian of '95, W. S. Ayers, '9 6, and Ben Loeb, '9 5, at one of the three round tables for Fifty- Plus alumni. I want to assure the men of '9 7 that when I counted this gang all members were generally present. I also want to say that, with Teece in the lead this gang met many times during the two days and acted like a bunch of freshmen. The "Alumni picnic, Lamberton Hall and campus" scheduled at 12 noon. was something to remember. Also the Ladies' Band or Girls' Band or what- ever Teece Yates wants to call it, can be remembered without any trouble at all. Their skirts were even shorter than short, period. I am not a very good reporter on this picnic, because I got into a discussion with Bones Castleman about the foreign policy of the Administration in Washington. (I suspect he is a Black Republican!!) We got plenty to eat, but all I saw or heard was the girls' band and the dis- cussion with Bones. As a passing mat- ter of "slight" interest, the picnic was given to the alumni by the University — "free." 1S97 was always in favor of free meals I Teece Yates needs special mention in this letter, and I know Pop Penning- ton would have given him plenty of space. Teece was as handsome as ever. He told me he was an invalid and had quit drinking, smoking and swearing, etc., but I did not see any evidence to indicate that he had quit anything. He legaled our gang with spicy stories and then some. He related escapades that he pulled off on or about 1S93-97 that would have shocked almost all '9 7 men. but Teece seemed to think it was all in a day's work. He is just the same good mixer he was 50 years ago and he told us in his 37th speech to our gang (I think it was the second day) that he considered the first 50 years the hardest. That means the men of '9 7 will have the "advice and consent" of Teece for many years to come. The following are quotes from let- ters: Brady said May 11: "It was nice to hear from you and I certainly regret that I will not be able to be east in June. In fact, I don't expect to get away from Bloomington (Illinois) for the rest of this year, not even to go fishing or any other recreation, as we are in the throes of bringing natural gas into this district and with all the red tape in effect now we have to be on the job every minute. This is not a case of 'sitting' on the job. but being up and fighting all the time. "Please give my regards to all the boys and wish them all the best of luck — same to you." Brady has a real job, because natu- ral gas is a lot cheaper than manufac- tured gas per 1000 B.T.U.'s and when they run head on into each other, there is a hot time in the old town. I notice printed on the bottom of Brady's letter, "Gas for the 5 big jobs. Refrigeration — Cooking — Water Heating — House Heating — Air Con- ditioning." That is good advertising and I don't mean mebby! Fulnier said May 15: "I wish to thank you for the kind remembrance of me. I am anxious to see you but can- not attend on account of sickness. You can tell the men you at least heard from me. My best regards to all." I can say that all the men of '9 7 wish Fulmer a quick recovery and hope to see him at the 1952 alumni reunion. JULY, 1951 22 LEHIGH ALUMNI BULLETIN Let me have letters from the men of '97, and I will copy them in the class of '97 column in the Lehigh Bulletin. We all get a kick out of these letters. And they remind us of the four bully years we spent at Lehigh. HENRY T. BORHEK 30 'Wall Street, Bethlehem, Pa. It is a mystery to me, and I'm sure it is to you, that I started writing the July class letter on Decoration Day, May 30. There are several possible rea- sons — one that I want to get most of it written before it interferes with the many events scheduled for June. Two, I have a number of letters from '9S men that I want to send to our shut-in classmate, George Davies, after using extracts from them in this letter. Last- ly, so that I can do some evening trout fishing late in June with a clear con- science, not having an uncompleted class letter on my mind. A recent post card from our banner correspondent, Ed Kiehl, now of Or- lando, Fla., states that they are slowly getting settled in their new home. He adds that chasing flamingos is nearly as much fun as fishing but much hard- er work. Flamingos, apparently, have replaced seals and blondes in Ed's af- fections and he will soon be reporting that he caught one — a flamingo, I mean. My dictionary defines a flamingo as "a long legged, web footed, red colored bird," but unfortunately says nothing about its usual diet. I fear that flamingos eat fish and that Ed will be reporting on the number of fish he catches and feeds to these birds. Davey ChUds is still going strong. In his letter of May 9 he says, "Gard- ening work is in full swing when I can get out to do it. I spent five or six hours in the garden last Friday. Great stuff, Henry, and I was tired but not exhausted. A fine, healthy tired feel- ing. You may conclude from this that I'm in good health and spirits and you are not mistaken in your conclusion." Another letter from him on May 31 states that his garden truck is growing in fine style. He is much concerned about Ed Kiehl. Ed sent him a post card from Orlando, but not a word on it about fish — a most unusual occur- rence! T. H. (Tommy) La«Tence sent me an interesting letter several weeks ago. Tommy says he is in the same condi- tion that I am — no longer able to wade in trout streams as in former days. The only sport he can engage in today is trap shooting and shooting over his dogs in the field. For 28 years he has been the chairman of the committee in charge of the Amateur Champion- ship of America Trap Shooting Con- test, held annually on the grounds of the New York Athletic Club. Tommy also holds the chairmanship of the Club's Trap Shooting Department. Even a passing look at the program he sent of the 42nd Amateur Champion- ship Shoot convinced me that the chairman of this event must have un- usual executive ability to handle it successfully. In conclusion he says, "It keeps me in the open air and I benefit from same and enjoy the best of health." I have had several letters re- cently from George Davies. He is still a "shut in" but his letters are in a cheerful vein and his disability has not resulted in a letdown of his interest in Lehigh or a gloomy view of life in general. After writing the foregoing, several weeks have passed and much unpleas- ant weather has been endured. For- tunately the weather cleared for alum- ni weekend and the 16th was a warm, sunny day. I did not attend the Buffet Supper on Friday evening. The top floor of Grace Hall is an abominable place to reach, parking is a problem and outdoor lighting at night is poor. The Saturday Alumni Picnic was most enjoyable. My wife and I met a lot of oldtimers, but no '9S's. During the morning I saw Pop Wieg- iier heading south, for the campus, I thought. If he was there I missed see- ing him. Jack Gass, a former regular attendant, was absent for the second time. I hear that his health does not permit travel or much activity. For a complete account of Alumni Day activities, I refer you to the rest of this Bulletin. The obituary of Clarence M. Pflue- ger, Bethlehem R. 3, who died on June 15, aged 77 years, was published re- cently In our local paper. Remember- ing that he was considered a member of our class, although the Alumni Di- rectory lists him as '97, I referred to our class book and found that he had been a '96 man who joined '98 in our first term freshman and left college during our first term junior. He is sur- vived by his wife and six daughters. With the July class letter out of the way and no more to be written for several months, I'll have a little more time for other evening projects. Yes, you have guessed correctly — fly fish- ing in the nearby streams and fly ty- ing, also. All the trout I have taken this year were on flies of my own tying. I hope you all are having a pleasant summer. Meet you again in the Octo- ber Bulletin. ARTHUR W. KLEIN kS Wall Street, Bethlehem, Pa. One of the busiest week-ends of my existence has just come to an end. Thursday evening, June 14, the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association met at the Bethlehem Club for dinner and the transaction of business. Fri- day evening, June 15, a buffet supper (replacing the annual alumni dinner) was held in Grace Hall. Saturday, June 16, was Alumni Day, with a business meeting in Coppee Hall, alumni luncheon and parade of reunion classes, ending with the giving of awards at the flagpole. The only other '9 9 man here for the festivities was Steckel, who accom- panied me to the supper Friday night. We joined forces on the campus Satur- day afternoon and with other Fifty- Plus men paraded directly behind the highly glamorous drum majorette band and preceding the 50-year class of '01. On Saturday evening Bob Iiaraniy and yours truly conducted the dinner meeting of the Back-Every-Year Club in the '9 6 Room of the Hotel Bethle- hem. A large turnout resulted and a successful affair was held. Steckel and I represented '99. On Sunday morning our new altar (gift of the Starkeys) was dedicated in the chapel. Bishop Sterrett and Chaplain Bean conducted the services, assisted by Bishop Gardner of New Jersey and Dean Adams of Trinity Cathedral in Trenton. Bishop Gardner preached the sermon. At the Baccalaureate Service in the Chapel on Sunday afternoon Dr. Lis- ton Pope, Dean of the Yale Divinity School, delivered the address. On Monday morning, June 18, the Commencement exercises were held in Grace Hall, at which 483 men were graduated — Lehigh's largest class to date — and many M.A. and M.S. degrees were present. Several Ph.D.'s were awarded. There were also awarded several honorary degrees, including Doctor of Humane Letters to our distinguished historian. Professor Gipson, who will be Professor of History at Oxford Uni- versity for the coming year; Doctor of Science to Professor Sinnott, head of Sheffield Scientific School of Yale Uni- versity, and Doctor of Laws to Presi- dent Haupert of Moravian College and Theological Seminary, Headmaster Boyden of Deerfield Academy, and United States Senator Duff of Pennsyl- vania. The Senator delivered the address to the graduating class.

And this is but one of its important and valuable qualities. Through radiography it checks for sound- ness in castings, welds, and assemblies without damaging the part. Through high speed movies it reveals oper- ating characteristics too swift to see otherwise and suggests improvements in design.

SAMUEL T. HARLEMAN 110 Wesley St., Bethlehem, Pa. FIFTIETH REUNION Our Fiftieth Reunion is now a mat- ter of history. The attendance was great enough for us to win the 1S91 Reunion Cup with 69% of the class back for the reunion. The gifts to the Alumni Fund came from 100% of the class and won for us the 19 01 Active Membership cup, put in competition for the first time for classes with 20 to 100 on the class rolls. The gang started to assemble on Thursday with the arrival of McGon- igle from Portland, Ore., who had the honor of being the first alumnus to register. We were more than glad to have with us Harrar from Youngstown. Ohio, on his very first reunion. The same is true of Young, who came in from Detroit, Mich. Thornton of Pasa- dena, Calif., returned for the first time since the fifth reunion. All of the others were the "regulars," Including Girdler who flew in from Cleveland, stopping en route at Scranton to pick up Evans. At the last moment illness prevented the attendance of Buch and Gearhart, as well as our honorary member, Roy A. Lewis. We sincerely trust that all of them will soon be on the road to a speedy recovery. At the Alumni Supper in Grace Hall on Friday night the YEN loving cup was put in the custody of the class of 1951 through its president, Albert Eryniarski. This class was instructed by our president, Tom Girdler, to use the cup at its reunions, and at its 50th reunion in 2001 to pass it on to that class for safekeeping. At this same time it was announced that '01 had reached its goal of "$5,000 for the 50th" as its gift to the Alumni Fund. When we lined up for the alumni parade we had the following: Barba, Evans, Flory, Girdler, Harleman, Har- rar, Heitshu, Laubenstein, McGonigle, Donaldson, Morris, Peck, Startsman, Staufler, Thornton, Young, plus sons Barba, '27, Flory, '2 9, Harleman, '33, Laubenstein, '3 9, Stauffer, '27, and grandsons Hutchins, '5 0, and Barba, '54. The reunion dinner on Saturday night was presided over by "Prex" Girdler, who handled the whole affair in his usual excellent manner. The usual toast was drunk to Yen, followed by others to those members of the class who have passed on since the 4 5th re- union. They are: Chiokering, Fillers, Enzian, Freund, Krause, Ryan, Sy.r.- ington, AVelsh and WiLson. The reunion was voted the best ever. Girdler and Evans made reservations at Hotel Bethlehem for the 75th reunion. The 50th reunion banner was award- ed to Thornton, who came the great- est distance to attend the reunion. The committee is still trying to decide on a suitable prize for Barba, who has a wife, nine children and 24 grandchil- dren. An unusual feature of the re- union was the participation by three generations of Barbas, represented by Charles, '01, Charles, Jr., '27, and Peter, '54. One of the Alumni Special Awards went to Cad Evans. Previous recipients were Donaldson and McGonigle. ^£'«W4 o^ f904 E. LOU FARABAUGH /02S West ilarket St.. Bethlehem. I'n. Our 47 th reunion was attended by the following members: Frank Sinn, Herb Hartzog, Charles Lueders, Stone Edelen, Ralph Ohlwiler, Jlike Jones, Clint Bloss, Herman Coleman, Horace Cleveland, Charles Moflfatt, J. L. Bea- ver, E. Lou Farabaugh, John Pelly, George Desh and Bill Cram. Festivities began on Friday the 15tli at an informal gathering where the weary travelers were revived with a little cheer, until time to go to Grace Hall at 7 p.m. for the Alumni Buffet Supper. On Saturday the party attended the Alumni Picnic on the campus, where we encountered many old familiar faces from the class of 1906 who were celebrating their 45th, and many of the events of olden times were brought to memory. We made a visit to the chapel to see the improvements and again find our names on the bronze plaques placed there when we graduated. One of the highlights of this get- together was our visit to the Varsity Locker Room to view the new plaque erected by the men of the class of 19 4 whose names adorned the original one presented to the University. These are now twin plaques and are placed there as an inspiration to future varsity teams to give their all in an effort to equal or surpass the records estab- lished by the men whose names are there recorded.

John Powell, our class agent, 339 Weldon St., Latrobe, Pa., was unable to get here for the 47th but sent best wishes for a good turnout.

WILLIAM H. LESSER /.?22 Myrtle St., Scranton, Pa. The Houston Chronicle of April 26 had this to say about Russell Wait: "WAIT IS MADE BRAZOS HARBOR DISTRICT MANAGER" "Freeport, April 2 6 — Announcement was made that J. Russell Wait has been appointed general manager of the Brazos River Harbor Navigation Dis- trict by the district commissioners, Stanton Stone of Freeport, chairman, E. L. Boston of Angleton and George Badge of Brazoria. "Completing a planning stage of over a year as port engineer, Wait's appointment carries the program al- most to the digging part of the deep water public port project. "Wait has already negotiated a swap with Phillips Oil Co., which gives the navigation district 1000 feet of Brazos River frontage in exchange for a future frontage of that amount on the com- pleted harbor slip. In order to complete an adequate outlet for the channel, he needs 60 feet frontage on land belonging to the Freeport Sulphur Co. "Wait considers the price exorbitant that is being asked for this riverfront property, which is now set at $50 per foot in addition to the cost per acre. Some 230 acres are needed for the pre- liminary project. "The railroad company has approved the moving of track to run closer to the old townsite levee and south of the proposed slip. "The controversial crossing of New River is part of the master plan for port development, to be passed on and engineered in future years. "As the area now stands, the port area will begin at the Phillips Oil Co. docks, turn at slight angle and run 5000 feet on Pine Street. On the Pine Street end the property will extend from the railroad to a point 100 feet past the towusite levee. "The first task after acquiring the land. Wait said, is the tearing up of the old sulphur docks road to Quintana Beach, replacing it with a highway farther south. "Two major delays still exist. Navi- gation district commissioners are hold- ing up sale of the port bonds until they can obtain a more favorable interest rate; and Wait is holding up the pur- chase of the land until he can get a more favorable price." The Electrolux Co., Arthiu' Murray, works manager, now publishes the "Electrolux Factory News" which gives the information concerning this ag- gressive organization. At a big meeting of the Electrolux sales division Arthur said this; "It's the little things that count — a smooth- ly operating low-cost, efiicient, profit- able production line is not only a mat- ter of capital equipment manned by a skilled and cooperative personnel, but is dependent on little details in design of product, production tooling and ma- terials handling." Arthur's production method is di- rectly responsible for the success of this company. CHARLES F. GILMORE 152S Greenviount Ave. Dormant, PittsburgU, Pa. The 4 5-year reunion of the class of IS 6 was by long odds one of the most successful in the history of the organ- ization. Twenty-seven men out of an active class roster of 6 2 said they would attend, and 27 were present. That's an unbeatable record for prom- ise and performance. Present were: Laiier, Cort, Root, Dean, Lueders, Stair, Gregg, VanDuyne, Wait, Wriglit- son, Gott, March, Langdon, lUrk, Fear, Dent, Gilmore, Barwls, Maurer, Hayes, Stoutter, Cupitt, Smull, Brillhart, Jef- ferson, Hanuiiaker and Liotz. And they came from Texas, New York, New Jer- sey, North Carolina, West Virginia, Alabama and Pennsylvania. Of the 2 7 unable to attend, all sent letters of greeting to the class and ex- pressed regrets over their inability to attend. Included in these were notes from William S. Watson, of Buffalo, N. Y., and Frank A. Henry, of Nutley, Sussex, England, declaring that they are promising now that, Providence willing, they will be on hand for the 5 0-year reunion in 19 5 6. Since more than ten members of the class never have missed a reunion, this looks like a pretty fair start for the Golden Year. No word was received from eight members of the class, though none of their first class mail was returned. The whole reunion program was a succession of delightful events and ex- periences. The informality of the Alumni Dinner with its lack of speech- es but featured by succinct and inter- Twenty-seven returned to enjoy their favorite reunion. 26 LEHIGH ALUMNI BULLETIN esting reports, the alumni picnic and the alumni parade, pleased everybody — not too long and not too short. All members were happy over the citation of Thomas N. Lacy, of Detroit, Mich., as an outstanding alumnus. Tom had written regretting his inability to at- tend because he feared the exertion of the trip. On Saturday afternoon members of the class, their wives and daughters were guests at the elegant home of Mr. and Mrs. David H. Brillhart on Bath Road, a reunion feature enjoyed over many years. The spacious veranda and living room and the shaded lawn pro- vided an ideal setting for exchanging greetings and reminiscences. The gra- cious hospitality of the Brillharts left nothing to be desired. With Billy Stair at the piano memory took us all back to more youthful days when Billy was literally the toast of the campus. The class banquet in Saucon Valley Country Club brought the pleasurable weekend to a fine climax. Noted at the dinner was the passing during the past five years of Charles Underwood, Rob- ert R. Rench, N. G. Smith and Carl M. Schoonover. And now looking ahead to 195 6! Many members of the class expressed regret at their failure to keep in closer touch with their classmates. To help correct this situation each member of the class of 19 6 will be provided with a complete roster and it will be kept current. This may mean, and we hope it will, that in 1956 we will know more about each other and be in position to boost both our promise and perform- ance record to 100 per cent of all available men. The final act of business at the ban- quet was the election of Charles F. Gilmore as secretary and Thomas H. Lueders as treasurer of the class. Es- tep T. Gott is president for life. LEWIS HECK Slt^l Northampton St., N. W. Washington 15, D. C. WARREN E. MCCANN SOI W. School Lane, Germantown Philadelphia, Pa. Ten of the faithful were back for Alumni Day, including Baer, Brothers, Daubenspeck, Fair, Heck, Hollister, Rraemer, McCann, Schafer and Spaeth. This gave our class the largest contin- gent of any of the non-reunion classes. Mac took some pictures and one of them may come through in time for publication on this page. We of course sat together on Friday night, and on Saturday night joined the 50-Plus and Back-Every-Year groups at the Hotel Bethlehem. George Brothers asked to be relieved of the onerous duties of class agent in view of his many other activities in Bethlehem, including membership on the Building and Grounds Committee of the Board of Trustees. At the unani- mous and urgent request of all present, Daubenspeck agreed to take on the job, and we predict that he will be suc- cessful in it.

A rather pungent postal card sent out by Fair in May appears to have had some results. Foster Banks appears to have re- tired, since his new home address is P. O. Box 617, Old Saybrook, Conn., rather too tar for commuting to New York. Has any member of the class infor- mation about the present location of Stamilman? Mail sent to his old ad- dress has been returned. The report of the Alumni Association gives further details about Harvey Bassler's bequest to the University. His library of some 15,000 volumes, dealing with natural science and par- ticularly with South America, is valued at $25,000. John Dorsey had not been heard from for many years but in response to a personal appeal from Brothers wrote a very interesting letter and likewise sent a substantial contribution to the Alumni Fund. His letter follows: "Have been intending to get back to reunions and may do so this sum- mer. Will you be there? Once my car was hit when I planned to be there. That was in 19 48. Am still professor of electrical engineering at the Uni- versity of Manitoba. Expect to retire next year. Am still interested in cir- cuits, machines and engines. Was im- pressed by our wonderful football sea- son, and can't understand what hap- pened. Lehigh should have a good year next fall. We expect smaller classes here. That president's report for Le- high was wonderful and I showed it all around Manitoba with considerable pride." All members of the class will be very sorry to learn of the recent sudden death in California of Dean Palmer, an adopted member of '08 and guest of honor at our 40th, as well as at pre- vious reunions. He began his long ca- reer at Lehigh while we were in col- lege, and always had a very special standing with our class. HOWARD M. FRY Franklin and Marshall Colletje Lancaster, Pa. We have just returned from our forty-first reunion of the class of 1910. By we, I mean Lloyd LieVan, his son James, who acted as a careful chauf- feur, and me. Lloyd has been spending the past three weeks here in Lancas- ter, where he has been recuperating after an operation. He sure has been a game sport about getting back. He has spent quite a few evenings with us JULY. 1951 27 looking at Uncle Milty, Arthur God- frey and others. During the day we have been trying out a few of the Lan- caster County roads, getting in prac- tice for our trip to the reunion. That sort of "spirit" would have made our forty-first, with eighteen attending, equal to our fortieth. This number did not include some of the members of our class from Lehigh County, who should have been with us. Again we want to take off our hats to G. P. R. "Peter" Bahnson for mak- ing the finest kind of arrangements with the Saucon Valley Country Club for our entertainment. And again we wish to thank those "mysterious" members of the class who entertained for the cocktail hour. Seated at one table on the beautiful west side of the Country Club were Gorman, Eder, Rhoades, Hysler Zane, Brad Waltz and Tressler. At a second table were Street, Lawson, Eddie Killough and his chauf- feur friend, "Duke" Wolfe, '20, Heard, Nels Dovvnes and Bahnson. And at the third table were Lawrence, E. C. Smith, Bright, More, LeVan, his son, Jim, an P. and M. alumnus who did his graduate work at Lehigh, and yours truly. A fine fried chicken dinner was en- joyed by all, after which we had a short business session. It was decided to make the 1910 get-together an an- nual event. A committee composed of those present was appointed, deter- mined to double the number of mem- bers returning for June 19 52 by means of personal letters, phone and personal visits. It was rather difficult to get the Country Club for an "off year" re- union, but thanks to Bahnson we all enjoyed this beautiful spot. Carvill Gorman reported that 1910 went over the top, its quota being $15 00 for this year. He could not re- port the grand total, as the returns are incomplete. Quite a few of the fel- lows attended the alumni buffet dinner on Friday evening, and enjoyed the new arrangement for this affair. As the classes of 1901, 1911 and 1926 were also at the Country Club, there was lots of life at the party. We had the opportunity to meet about 40 members of the class of 1911. Here again is a very good reason why we should try to meet every year, as we all have many friends in other classes. It is only when one returns to these reunions that he realizes how pleasant it is to contact his college friends. Letters were received from Stritz- Inger, Pierce and Swope, sending re- grets as they were out of the country. Also regrets from Bllheimer, Bryant and Woerwag. Dick Street and Brad Waltz promised me letters this summer, and I hope to report from them early in the fall. Think!!! Have you sent me a letter recently? If not, please DO IT NOW. You fellows say nice things about this column but, after all, it is only as good ar, you make it. Carvill, his wife, Lloyd and I had a pre-union luncheon at the Lancaster Stock Yard Inn on Friday, when the Gormans stopped to see us on their way through Lancaster. It is hard to believe that after com- piling the column for the May issue, we must sorrowfully submit the fol- lowing item regarding the passing of "Terry" Caffall on June 1. Both Al Osbourne, '09, and Alan Floyd thoughtfully forwarded the clipping, which appeared in the Pittsburgh Press on June 3: "Geoffrey A. Caffall, former mana- ger of erection at the Bethlehem Steel Co., died yesterday in Gulfport, Miss., where he had been living since retire- ment last September. Before moving to Gulfport, he had lived at the Arlington Apartments, East End. "Born in Alton, England, he came to this country at an early age with his parents who settled in eastern Pennsylvania. "Mr. Caffall was graduated from Le- high University as a civil engineer. During World War I he volunteered as a member of the Canadian Army En- gineers, serving overseas. After the war Mr. Caffall came to Pittsburgh and began his career with Bethlehem. "Mr. Caffall was a member of the Engineering Society of Western Penn- sylvania, Beta Lodge No. 647, F. & A. M., Pennsylvania Consistory, Scottish Rites and Syria Temple. "Surviving are his widow, Mrs. June Hynson Caffall; a brother, Edgar E. of Larchmont, N. Y., and a stepdaugh- ter, Mrs. J. M. Owston of Detroit, Mich." Alan promptly wired a floral trib- ute from "The Class of 1910" to La- fayette, La. Today I received an ac- knowledgment from Mrs. Caffall. We are very sorry to hear about his death, and we are going to miss Terry's help- ful letters for the Bulletin, which we had been getting at frequent intervals. From Aliquippa, Pa., W. C. Van Blarcom, who is vice president of the Aliquippa and Southern Railroad Co., writes us a most interesting letter: "I have been hoping I could get back again this year for Alumni Day, but it is not working out that way.

Later, becoming interested in the then so-called scientific manage- ment movement, I went with the Balti- more and Ohio Railroad in 1916 to help install a standard track work and ef- ficiency system in their maintenance of way department under the direction of the well known consulting engi- neer, Harrington Emerson. The fol- lowing year I broadened the field by forsaking railroading for the rapidly expanding rubber industry in Akron to help organize a production planning department in what was then the Mil- ler Rubber Co., but which later be- came a part of the B. F. Goodrich Co. About four years later I went back to Scranton with the Hudson Coal Co. to help reorganize their stores depart- ment. Then two years later the com- bination of railroad engineering and industrial engineering experience seemed to fill a need of the then rap- idly growing Aliquippa and Southern Railroad, a common carrier subsidiary of the Jones and Laughlin Steel Cor- poration.

He is keenly interested in improving the service of the church to the com- mon people — spiritually, not politic- ally. He spent last summer in a coal mining town in the mountains of Wy- oming where the community had been without a Protestant minister for twelve years. He had a very satisfying experience in helping them organize a church. This past year he has been do- ing his field work, a day a week, at the Labor Temple in New York City, making a survey of the wide range of educational activities of the numerous and various labor unions. The expe- rience has been an interesting one. Next year his field work will be with the Brooklyn Council of Churches to help develop closer relations between labor and the Council. This summer, as his own project, but with the ap- proval and introductory assistance of some of the church leaders in this country, he expects to make a survey of some of the applied Christianity pro- jects in six European countries. As he is a skillful photographer and returned from the west with some splendid color slides of his experiences, including au- to and hiking trips in the mountains, I am looking forward to his return from Europe in September with more pictures of beauty and interest. "Both of our boys are tall and well set up, but we seemed to have run out of height when our daughter, Beth, came along later, for she is small, though also well set up, and a blond bombshell.

Not having been permitted to go to Lehigh, she chose its prototype among the women's colleges, Wilson College at Chambersburg, Pa. Here she learned how to work and acquired a sound academic education. Then, want- ing to see what the world was like be- yond Pennsylvania, she got herself a job teaching at the widely known Kent School in Denver. She has enjoyed Col- oiado so much the past two years that she expects to return there next year. Indeed, she makes it sound so good that I am getting anxious to take a look at it myself. "My wife and I are now interested in studying and discussing various re- tirement locations. We have thought very favorably of the mountains of North Carolina, in the vicinity of Ashe- ville and Hendersonville for year-round climate and congenial living condi- tions. My brother has bought a retire- ment farm in a pleasant valley in New York State adjoining the Vermont bor- der, and is trying to persuade us to build a modest summer place there, going to Florida perhaps during the winter. At the moment we are giving that serious study." In the fall we promise you a very interesting letter from WiUiam J. Mc- Corinick, 305 Milton Street, New Cas- tle, Pa., and we hope to include with his letter one or more interesting pho- tographs taken many years ago. And now in closing the 1950-51 sea- son, we thank all who have been so helpful. It has been a pleasure to keep you posted on the events of the great- est class ever turned out at "Old Le- high." FRED E. GALBRAITH. SR. /Sa E. Pierrepont Ave.. Rutherford, N.J. Our fortieth reunion is now a mat- ter of history, and the accompanying photograph, taken by Sam Wagner at Saucon Valley Country Club prior to our reunion banquet, depicts the fol- lowing: Kneeling, L to R, Carson, J. Fisher, Merkel, Borden, Peterman, Lew Smith, Thornburgh, Schall. Stand- ing, Dillon, Lincoln, SiJOoner, Archie Fisher, Galbraith, Becker, LoHTy, Stair, Corddry, Hunter, Loii Miller, Horner (in front of Glnder) Bob Far- mer AVood, OUie Smith, Kiesel, Goep- pert and Koch. Ray Crump was around but missed out on most of the proceed- ings. Dawson, Gladding and IMohr miss- ed getting in the picture, and of course Sam Wagner was behind the camera. Bees Kenipsniith was present awhile on Friday, then went to New York to see his recently married daughter off on a trip to Europe. He got back in time to be in at the finish of the banquet. The official photograph, we hope, will show more nearly 100% of those present. Incidentally, Al Spooner is ar- ranging to secure copies of photos of former reunions, and any of you who want copies of same should get in touch with him. If there are copies of our first, third and fifth-year reunions extant, Al would like to secure copies of them for the records, as well as make copies available to those who want them. It was great to see the old gang again, especially those who had never been back or who had not been there for a long time. Dave Hunter and Mike Borden had us all guessing when they first came in, as did Ray Crump. Lou Miller, as predicted, had a lot of interesting tales to tell about his work on the "Big Inch." Having worked with Dave Hunter on a thesis, as well as in Allentown the summer of 1911, we had more to talk about than could JULY, 1951 29 be covered In two short days. Dave had an appointment with his firm's Jersey City people Monday after tlie reunion, so we had a further chance to fan the breeze. Unfortunately, a number of the fel- lows who had planned to be present were unable to get there on account of their health, etc. Hugh Spilsbiiry at- tended our preliminary luncheons in New York but at the last minute his doctor said "No." Jim Poffenberger, Art Frey, Ed Baumgartiier and Bob Shaw were all in the same boat. Late word from Al Spooner is that Jim is still not in very good shape. His new address is Apt. C3, 4403 Centre Ave., Pittsburgh 13, Pa. Chris Hellen also had planned to come and had to dis- appoint us. Had a letter from Horace Kerr some time ago in connection with a recent squib about him in this column, and he said that he sees Chick Albright in church and they both expected to come to the reunion, but they didn't make it. Jim Throm got his dates mix- ed — thought the reunion was on the 9th and made plans for a big whing- ding on the 16th and couldn't change it. Had a good letter from Earle Ball back in May. He is In Biloxi, Miss., and wrote that he had had a phone call from Charley Rittenhouse, from Mo- bile. (My records show Ritt lives in Montgomery, Ala.) Earle and Peggy drove over and spent the day with Ritt. Glad to hear that Earle's health is okay once more, but he has to reduce! One of the most heart-warming feat- ures of the whole affair was a most thoughtful action on the part of Don Lowry's secretary, Miss Erene Larsen, who arranged to have book matches on the banquet table, inscribed "1911 - LEHIGH - 1951." As a token of our appreciation we elected her an honor- ary member of the class, which she ac- cepted. She has started a folder for the 45th reunion. Jack Stair covered it when he sent his acceptance to Don. "Forty years! Great Caesar's ghost!" Don got some fine letters from some of the fellows in connection with the reunion, and as space will permit, some of the highlights will be included in later notes. In the meantime, let's give thought to the venerable class of 1910. They had such a hell of a good time at their 40th that they decided to make it an every year event from now on, and they had a big turn-out and a wonderful unofficial reunion. ^«M4 */ f9t3 EARLE F. WEAVER P. P. & L. Co. Cedar & Buttonwood Sts., Hazleton, fa. Another Lehigh reunion weekend has come and gone. Being an off year for 1913, it is natural to expect that only a few of our gang were on hand to help out with the festivities. Only Dan LeVan and Bob Watson arrived in Bethlehem in time to take in the dinner Friday evening. On Saturday, however, this group was swelled by the addition of Sunnie Edwards, Bob Djnan and Charlie Fellencer and, of course, yours truly. Weaver, in search of news for this column, as usual. Around lunch time we got together on the campus, where we were joined by Ruth LeVan and Miriam Dynan. Naturally, the chief topic of conversa- tion centered around our rapidly ap- proaching 40-year reunion, due in 19 53. Even though the group was small, we had a swell time watching the parade and other customary events of the afternoon. We sort of counted on seeing Leon Mart on the campus this June, but apparently he was not able to make it. However, he has been sending me news of interest to 1913'ers from time STRENGTH "^ — the world's most widely used mate' rid for security, stability, economy.

The following is quoted from his letter of May 7: "You will be interested in knowing that while in Tulsa over the weekend I contacted Richard (Dick) M. Bi-yce by telephone. He is very happy on a twenty-acre farm at Catoosa, a small town about 15 miles from Tulsa. He is living the life of a gentleman far- mer and enjoying it. His address is Box 1, Route 1, Catoosa, Okla. "Dick has two sons, the elder being Richard, age 22. He graduated in busi- ness administration from Kansas Uni- versity and is now at Fort Benning, Ga., in a tank battalion and expecting to leave for foreign service at any time. "Dick's second son, John, age 21, graduates this spring from Oklahoma A. & M. in animal husbandry. "Time did not permit my running out to see Dick, but will surely try to do so if ever the opportunity occurs." On May 17 Leon wrote me again to the effect that he found out that Joe Clarke has been in the San Francisco City and County Hospital for the past one and a half years. During that time, Joe has undergone two operations and is now confined to a wheel chair. Mart did not have time to contact him di- rect, but I am sure Joe would be glad to see any 1.3'er who happens to be in the vicinity of San Francisco. Incidentally, we have received word that Bert Tice has definitely promised that he will make it to our 40th re- union and that it will take something unusually serious to keep him away from that event. Some time ago the Alumni Bulletin Office advised that James Scott Long's latest residence address was Route 2, Box 318-G, Jeffersonville, Ind. That's all — until next fall. eicMA <^ f9f5 WILLIAM H. KELCHNER 5US Sylvester St., Philadelphia %!,, Pa. My apologies to all of you for miss- ing the last two issues. Due to prob- lems beyond my control it became im- possible to meet the deadline. It is my hope, now that we are once more back in print, to continue without further trouble. Your responses to the "Gift to Le- high" campaign for the fiscal year have been most encouraging. The quota set for our class has been pretty well met, as you will see when the final results are published, and a fairly good per- centage of the class have subscribed. According to reports there were very few back for Alumni Day from our class. Bert Blank called me the Mon- day following and told me the only '15 man he had run across was Bo Bodine — but then Bo wrote to say he had seen Walt Berg — so that seems to be the sum total. Missed being there my- self due to pressure of work. 'Twas a lovely day, however, Bert tells me — even the weather was on our side. Heard from BUI Pugh, who says they have so many plant extensions either on the way or under construc- tion up there in Canada that the days don't seem long enough. Received a nice letter from Harry Crichton, who is apparently in fine health and keeps that way by playing golf — although he says his putting is atrocious. In the same mail came a note from "Pete" Madden, who was too busy to write but not too busy to send along his check for Lehigh. Thank you, my dependable friend! From Lebanon Phil DeHuff respond- ed to my letter written on Philadelphia General Hospital paper, and Phil had the idea that I was probably ill. It's only because I'm completing the new Neurological Building there and equip- ping it for an approximate additional eight hundred patients, Phil. When completed the cost will amount to be- tween seven and eight million dollars. Then there came a letter from Billy AVlUs up in Dunkirk, N. Y., where re- cently was celebrated the 100th anni- versary of the Erie Railroad — that is, of the completion of the road across New York State to Dunkirk which was its western terminal. Bill's older son is with Babcock and Wilcox in Beaver Falls, N. Y. Lin Geyer wrote me late in May say- ing it would be Impossible to make the reunion this year. About the same time I received a letter from Tom DeLaney from out there in Detroit where he is president of the Vulcan Iron and Wire Works. Jack Nichols wrote in early May and included with his letter a paper he had recently completed on "Basic Behavior at Freezing and Thawing of Six Foods." I read it with a great deal of interest and suggest that if any of you want to know anything about fro- zen foods you get in touch with Jack up there at Penn State. Just had a letter from Bo, who was in a helluva rush, as usual. He had been in Bethlehem with Mrs. Bodine for the reunion weekend. A note from Buster Brown indicates that he is well and plenty busy. Inci- dentally his mailing address is Box 163, R.F.D. 1, Bridgeport. Conn. Also a short note from Perc Norton, who is now in the midst of a busy summer season, up there at Lake Com- pounce, Bristol, Conn. And last, but by no means least, a letter from my old friend Jess Am- brose in Boston. Haven't heard from Jess for a long time, and I'm glad to hear that he is well and that the world is treating him fine "once in a while." Now comes the summer break for the correspondents. The material for the first fall number is due in early September. Won't some of you resolve to sit down right now and write me a little note so that it will be a bit easier for me to start the next sea- son. Please do! May you all have an enjoyable sum- mer and a good vacation. EDWARD J. CLEMENT 780 Hilton Ave., Hempstead, N. Y. Practically every 1916er who came to Bethlehem on June 15-16 — some 35 in all — declared that the 3 5th reunion was one of the very best ever. Well, anyhow, those of you who couldn't make it missed gallons of fun and friendship. The boys who arrived on Friday af- ternoon assembled, according to plan, in the Tap Room of the Hotel Beth- lehem. For several hours 1916 took over a corner — the one nearest the bar, of course. Then around 7 o'clock. Eastern Day- light P.M., the gang went over to Grace Hall for the Alumni Buffet Sup- per. When the eats, speeches and skits fizzed out, 1916's cohorts moved on to the Bethlehem Club where we had re- served a special room. The festive mer- riment continued on into the early hours of the next day. Chief merry- makers were "No Tenor" Bausch and "Gravel Throat" Johnston. Fortunately the official doings for Saturday didn't start until noon, the hour for the beginning of the Alumni Picnic at Lamberton Hall (the old Commons to you ancients). The over- age spilled out over the campus around Drown Hall. Class headquarters were in Packer Hall, where we gathered to pick up costumes. After our features and fig- ures were photographed on the steps of the library, the parade started. It did your heart good to see how noble, vigorous and fiddle-fit the boys of '16 were as they stomped along cam- pus lanes in butchers' aprons and un- der umbrellas. Thereafter there was open house at the Lehigh Valley Club in Allentown until time for the class dinner at the same place. Grand steak we had. George Smith was toastmaster and the toast he mastered was done to a crisp JULY. 1951 31 A big market and a low-cost transportation network to cover it — that's the opportunity awaiting you in the Mid-Continent Empire with its 60,000,000 people, plus its store of raw materials, and its skilled workers. .

Profes- sor Larkin graciously made us feel as if we were just about tbe best bunch of blokes that ever went to Lehigh — which of course no one can deny. So gloriously ended the 3 5th Re- union of the Class of 1916 of Lehigh University for the following members of the class who were present: Baker, Bausch, Bergsti'esser, Buckner, Cahall, Clare, Clark, Clement, Ganey, Garges, Hartniann, Horine, Johnston, Keiser, Konselman, Martin, Mayers, McMillan, Moyer, Mudge, Murphy, Paules, Pow- ers, Reitzel, Ryder, Schmoll, Shields, Smith, Snyder, Spooner, Stem, Stoudt, Taylor, Toulmin and Volkliardt. 35 AT OXjTR 35TH!- 40TH: to AT OUR WAYNE H. CARTER Koppers Co. Inc., Kearny, N. J. We have just returned from Alum- ni Day activities where we saw a lot of familiar faces and a few pests, the latter variety being the type that in- secticides don't touch. A few of those guys remind you of old Mike Jacobs' expression, "I shoulda stood in bed." The first guy I saw was Bunnie. That's all, brother. After that, things began to perk up. I saw Pike, Grossart, Mudge, Grossart, Bill and Mrs. Youry. Eddie Clare said Guy Ailing was in pretty good shape but couldn't get to the reunion. Youry called me the other day to tell me that Tom Ralph had passed away last April after an illness of over a year. Tom had been manager of the Danlelson, Conn., plant of Connecticut Power & Light Company. He was a good guy. Along with the others who attended the business session of the Alumni Association I paid my respects to his memory (and Allie Connell's) yesterday. After the class parade Mrs. C. and I visited quite a while with Chet Lang- don, '0 6, prominent around Hunting- don, Pa., as a coal man, banker and clubman, and well known to many readers of this column. Chet looks fine (too hea^T though. Bud) and possesses that genial manner and cheerful dis- position for which he is famous. He's a great guy. Bennle Achom sent a card last week telling me that he wouldn't be up for Alumni Day as he was leaving for San Juan and the Virgin Islands. Elsewhere in this issue you will read of the sudden passing of one of Le- high's finest gentlemen, Philip Palmer, on June 4. To me, he was a standout: a scholar — perfectionist, yes — but in- tensely human and understanding. Poi) Lytle says that Dean Palmer always said that profanity was due merely to a lack of adjectives. Eleven years ago my boy and I sat with Palmer on his porch on the cam- pus and listened while Palmer talked to the boy, just out of Mercersburg, about what plans could be made con- cerning his studies at Lehigh. He was advised to start in B.A. and decide later whether or not to specialize in geology. Palmer said to me, "Carter, most alumni tell me how their sons are going to set the place on fire and are going to do excellent work. What do you think about your son?" I told him I thought he was average, thank God, and that he would do better than I did — but not much. In May 19 43, after my boy got his degree, we were standing outside Pack- er Memorial Church and Dean Palmer came over to us, shook hands and said, "Carter, you're one of the few alumni I have ever known who told the truth about his son here. I remember what you said. He did just what you pre- dicted." And, incidentally, not much more. So there goes another link between us and the Lehigh of our day. They were giants — and are yet. God rest their souls. The span of this old jour- ney is too short. Mrs. C. and I drove our daughter- in-law to New York on Thursday morn- ing, June 7, to put her on the plane to Minneapolis. We parked alongside the Air Terminal on 42nd Street tem- porarily and while I was unloading the luggage who came walking down the Avenue but Maude Mueller, B.A , B.D., M.A., LL.D. We talked for a few mo- ments (mainly about Palmer, for whom Lehigh was holding memorial services that day) and while I parked the car Maude "smashed the baggage" to the Terminal. It isn't every day that the president of Julius Kayser Co. carries your luggage. Maude told Mrs. C. that "he had come to work the wrong way that morning." It didn't do any harm to him. He's getting too fat anyway. Thanks, Maude. I know just what you meant on Alumni Day when you said you don't get up the hill as you did when you were teaching. WALTER R. PENMAN GUEST CORRESPONDENT 200 E. High St., Lebanon, Pa. When I received my assignment last September to cover the class for the July Issue of the Alumni Bulletin I made up my mind that I would confine the notes to the mechanical engineers. I had an idea that the mechanical engi- neers were being somewhat neglected in class notes. The fact that some of the M.E.'s have made the Bulletin since that time and that I did not get answers to all my letters has not de- terred me. Probably about 3 5 years' residence in the Pennsylvania Dutch area has augmented my natural stub- bornness. First, let me say that according to the official record the class of '18 wound up with 18 mechanical engi- JULY, 1951 33 neers. The names of the immortal 18 are: Jack Beard, Fred Beckmaiiii, A. K. Browii, Jay Clynier, Red Covell, Aiigy deSa, Dimmy Dmytrow, Red Ely, Bill Gaston, Johnnie Hogg, Hooi) Hoop- er, Lloyd Jenlclns, Eddie Klotz, Walter Penman, Hugh Phillips, R. R. Reed, Ray Stettler and Eggie Wait. As far as 1 know, only one has passed on to keep his appointment witli the Cliief Engineer. That one was Ralph R. Reed, who died October 8, 19 47. Have you ever wondered wliat be- came of tlie group of classmates with whom you were most closely associated through the four years of college? Well, I have, and when I was given this assignment 1 thought 1 would try to find out. I have accounted for one. Six others are tied up with five of our largest industrial corporations — Beckmann with Bethlehem Steel Co., Ely with Standard Oil, Hogg with DuPont, Phil- lips with U. S. Steel, Wait with Ford, and the writer with Bethlehem Steel. Six others chose to be bigger frogs in smaller ponds — Clymer with Arm- strong Cork, Brown with Riggs, Dist- ler & Co., Dmytrow with New York Steam Corp., Jenkins with Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co., Klotz with Babcock & Wilcox, and Stettler with Haloid Company. According to the records, two wound up on the Federal payroll — "Red" Co- vell is a captain in the Transporta- tion Corps of the U. S. Army, and Bill Gaston is with the War Assets Administration. 1 am now down to three. On deSa and Hooper I could get no dope. Be- cause Jack Beard always had the honor of heading our roll call in college, I am delegating him to the last place In this roll call. To those who have followed the Bulletin it will be known that Jack is holding down a position with Time Inc's. publication, "The Magazine of Building." Beckmann reports he is on an ex- tended vacation and taking things easy. "Red" Ely took a trip to Mexico via California and ran into three 'ISers, but 1 won't mention their names be- cause they are not M.E.'s. Eggie Wait has three sons, one being Lehigh 19 49. Ray Stettler sent me all the dope on Xerography — if you want to know what it is, ask him. Flash — 1 just returned from the wedding of John Webb Hogg, Jr., Le- high 19 50. In closing 1 wish to say that I got more out of this assignment than you will get out of reading these notes. What I refer to are the many friendly letters in answer to mine. Try it some time.

With perfect weatlier for the whole weeitend, a total of 52 in at- tendance, and probably the wildest col- lection of pajamas ever assembled — well, there you have the highlights. The following participated in some or all of the various doings: Alden, Barthold, Bartlett, Baver, Bevan, Bil- linger, Bowdeii, Clillds, the Christiiians, Coniey, Davenport, Dyer, Eisenberg, Ettelman, Farrington, Fleischer, Fraln, Garrett, Graff, "Mae" Hall, Helligman, Hicks, Hinclmian, Hood, Jiin Huebner, Kleckner, Lewers, Locke, Loeser, Mad- dox, McNamara, Merkel, Al Miller, Eb Morgan, Newell, Pfeiffer, Pursel, Rai- guel, Rheinfrank, Rice, Riebe, Rights, Roche, Savaria, Schofer, Shipherd, Stelle, Thompson, Willard, AVilson, AVolle, Yeide. Some features of interest in this reunion were: the number coming from considerable distances, notably Davenport from Omaha, Pfeiffer from Dallas, and Frain from Argentina; the fact that for five of the boys it was their first reunion (hope they had such a whale of a time they never miss another) ; that more than 25 who wish- ed to be with us were kept away by sickness, prior commitments, or some other factor beyond their control. Nearly 25 showed up at Grace Hall for the Friday evening dinner, a con- siderable number carried over at the Bethlehem Club later that evening, fifty lined up for the parade and, in spite of the hindrance offered by my map, 47 found their way to Flick- inger's. After partaking of "clam-bake with the fixings," the irreducible minimum of business was transacted. MikeSohra- der was elected class agent, replacing Jim Farrington who resigned after a five-year stint, while Hicks was re- elected as correspondent. (I told 'em I'd had a good time at the job and I wasn't going to resign, they'd have to throw me out.) (Oh, my gosh, you fool! — from the secretary to the cor- respondent.) Dave Pfeiffer, who rolled up the greatest number of land miles in returning for the reunion, was award- ed a cup — or was it a mug? Your cor- respondent received a fine Parker pen — a hint, as I understand it, that he write a few letters. Ha, nearly forgot! Our pajama out- burst gave us runner-up position for the Dave Petty reunion flag and got us the only parade picture in the Al- lentown Call. G. M. BRUMBAUGH 90 Broad St., Neiv York, N. Y. Some time ago, approaching Stam- ford, Conn., I happened to notice that the person beside whom I was sitting was Jim Carey. We each had had our faces in our respective papers for the entire time and did not realize the fact until Jim was leaving the car. In a few brief moments I learned that he is living in Stamford aud is with the E. B. Badger Co., and in all of these years has not been very far from me. Whatever the formula is, he apparent- ly has it. I would not have been sur- prised if he had told me he was grad- uating this year. Forbes Sllsby is now vice president and director of research for Allied Chemical & Dye Corporation. His in- terests now take him somewhat away from the field of patents in which he has been for so many years, and from independent sources I hear that he has been responsible for guiding and nurturing the enormous advance made by that company in its technology in the past fifteen or so years. I have seen and talked with Rup Hughes periodically and am able to re- port that he continues to exude his en- thusiasm and personality with undi- minished force. I had gotten a good bit of information from him as to quite a number of classmates, but do not feel that it would be fair for me to pass it along and thus take it away from him. To the extent that I am poaching on his preserves I think I should say that Brookie Brewer is now living in Bryn Mawr, Pa., and I will leave the rest for Rup to report in his column. Heinle Carroll is a consulting engi- neer here in lower New York, and I see him periodically. He is a physicist of substantial parts and it makes me uneasy, when I am in his presence, to think that he and I were once study- ing physics together. He did some im- portant work in connection with the atomic bomb development during the war and, I think, has made some im- portant contributions toward the peace- time use of atomic energy and in col- laboration with the Brookhaven Labo- ratories. Charlie Deats is still with the Amer- ican Telephone and Telegraph Co. here in New York City at 3 2 Sixth Avenue. I have been in touch with him occa- sionally, and he still reports in as playing tennis (and at his age!). Claude Knoderer is also with the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. at the same place with Charlie Deats and has consented to help keep in touch with some of our classmates here in the City. Both he and Charlie live over in New Jersey (a garden spot, according to some). Wop and Nancy Saltzman have just celebrated their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, and I was fortunate to be able to attend their fine party in cele- bration of the occasion. Both of them looked like young newlyweds and most of the spectators thought the whole thing was a gag, but having been best man for Wop I was able to certify as to the correctness of the assertion. Rup Hughes was also there, as were Mr. and Mrs. Bill Davis, '23. JULY. 1951 35 TRUMAN W. ESHBACH ZOOl Hickory Rd., Homewood, III. Since this is tiie last issue until next October, I am thanking one and all for the communications during this past season, and I again want to re- mind you that any word I receive dur- ing the summer months will be more than welcome, since the first issue next October is always tough to make due to the fact that everyone probably for- gets about an Issue then, because of summer activities. I have a letter from George Desh, which I am quoting in its entirety. "Just a brief report on the alumni activities over this weekend. I was on the campus today to witness the an- nual alumni parade and renew old ac- quaintances, and also tried to dig up a few more dollars for the 19 23 Alum- ni Fund. Only four members of our class were present besides myself — Thompson, Roller, Van Keut'en and Dynan. "Tommy Thompson is one of the real faithful members of the class. He is quite regular in attendance at foot- ball games and alumni affairs. His son, who was manager of the undefeated football team, graduates on Monday, so he is staying over for graduation. The fellows all look swell and still have that 'Joe College' appearance. "Van Keuren is leaving for Japan, where he will be in charge of a Post, and expects to arrive there by July 2. He would like to know Kegad's ad- dress. He says he is somewhere in Japan and Van expects to be there for three years. If you have the address Van would appreciate it. (I sent a let- ter to Van, gave him the address and asked him to write me a news item for the October issue.) "The weather was perfect, the at- tendance good and I suppose all had a line time. This is all. Best regards, George." After you have read the above it will become quite apparent to you, as it has to me, that our class has been coming up the rear as far as the Alum- ni Fund is concerned, and I am of the same opinion as George that if we cannot lead in volume, we certainly should bring up our percentage of donations by sending along a check, even if it is only in a minimum amount. During the first week of June I had the pleasure of attending our Corpora- tion General Sales Meeting, and spent some time at these meetings with "Dusty" Rhoades, and "Spike" Lloyd. I also ran into Bill Major, '24, who is also with the corporation. After the meeting, I spent one morning with Art Cusick, who is assistant general man- ager of Universal Cyclops Steel at Bridgeville. Art certainly looks fine and apparently feels just as good as he looks. As he puts it, "working like a dog and loving it." On my way into the plant to see Art, I ran into Bill Long, who is vice president in charge of sales with the same company. I guess this winds up all the news for this issue, and I am hopefully ex- pecting to hear from many of you for the fall opening. GORDON T. JONES Ifhl Belmont Avenue, Haledon, N. J. A letter from Jack Shigo informs us that he has become associated with U. S. Radium Corp. of Bloomsburg, Pa., as assistant plant manager. He is dealing with ionotrons and polonium or some such stuff about which clergy- men don't know. Young Jack, so we learn, is giving a good account of him- self on the lacrosse team at Trinity. He is following in the old man's foot steps, sure enough. A nice deep bow to Jack's wife, Camille, for making Jack sit down and write me. Une of .^any . .

He had the joy of being present -when young Ted was initiated into Sigma Nu. There is an interesting oddity of dates in connection with the classes of members of the Scheetz fam- ily. For instance "Grandpa" George S. Baton is of the class of 1S94; "old man" Ted is of 1924; "young" Ted is of the class of 1954. Ted also informs us that he sees with some frequency Frank Bumbaugh and Pete Fleck. Thanks to R. C. Hicks, '21, we learned that Sid MacKenzie has been appointed sales manager of Babcock & Wilcox and has moved from Philadel- phia to their New York headquarters. Congratulations on a nice promotion go to Sid, and our thanks to Hicks for the information. Word comes that Dan Hoagland, your class correspondent for many years, is now at home at 3308 - 8 4th St., Jackson Heights. N. Y. Paul E. Schwartz now resides at 224 Seventh St., Phillipsburg, Pa., ac- cording to notice from the alumni of- fice. I ran into Joe Boyle the other day. Joe has been building homes in the Totowa section of Paterson at a great rate, and they are good looking places too. I'm trying to persuade him to build me one to which to retire, but he doesn't persuade easily. You have received Ralph Ritter's letter about the rating of the class in gifts for the Alumni Fund, haven't you? Well, the real question is this: have you sent Ralph a check for that good cause? Here's hoping you will send a gift before you go on vacation. James A. Boyd's address is 2 69 W. nth St., New York City. Lloyd F. Underwood now is to be addressed at 2 5 Locust Ave., Port Washington, N. Y. Have you heard that the University proposes renovating Taylor Dorm to the tune of $150,000? The deal in- cludes a lot of fixing that has been needed for a long time. Word has it that associate professor of chemistry Dr. Robert "Bob" Bil- linger was among the seven members of the faculty of the University who were honored for 2 5 years' service to the University at the Annual Facul- ty Dinner. Gosh. Bob, you aren't as young as you look, are you? I'm not going to any more Lehigh club meetings because I always get jobs thrust upon me whenever I go. That's what happened when I attend- ed the meeting at the Glen Rock A. C. The good part of that meeting was hearing the splendid address bj' Dr. Dunlap. Director of Admissions Camp- bell paved the way for Dunlap by his cleverly prepared address.

The 1925 Back-Every-Year Club was represented at the annual re- union this year by Larry Kingharu, Whltey Wardell, Ken Batz, Ed Garra, Joe Ricapito and your correspondent. The class, in an effort to encourage all graduates to return for a visit to Lehigh's lovely campus every year at reunion time, marched in the parade and had its picture taken. Maybe next year more will come back and we can have a real party! The squad out for spring football looked good and Lehigh should give Its opponents some interesting Satur- day afternoons next fall. If you have- n't seen the Big Brown lately, plan a trip to Bethlehem this fall and you'll be well repaid! Information received from the alum- ni ofiice reports Heber A.

Undoubtedly you have seen many times in advertisements the phrase, "It must be seen to be appreciated." The same general idea could certainly be applied to our 25th to the effect that you had to be back to appreciate it. It is just about impossible for mere words to portray the spirit engendered by our class over that weekend. From the time the early birds liter- ally took over the grill room at the Saucon Valley Country Club right af- ter noon on Friday until the hangers- on were shooed out of the same place late Saturday night (or was it early Sunday morning), things weren't ex- actly riotous but the tenor was at a high pitch, flavored with a generous revival of old times and characters. And don't you stay-awayers get any notion that it was a brawl. Really, there wasn't a drunk in the crowd. Except for the record, it might ap- pear sort of futile to attempt to de- JULY, 1951 37 scribe the week-end here, because nothing can be told those who were liere, and those of you who couldn't make it won't believe us anyway. Apparently our class improves with age, reunionwise, because we upped the number returning to 90 this time; it was around 8 3 five years ago. So our ding-donging efforts paid off after all. Our class also improved during the past five years by winning two out of a possible three cups; last time we should have won the second but we wuz robbed. We were awarded the Alumni Fund cup for the class having the highest percentage of participation in the Fund and/or Student Grants, with an official percentage of 8 6 (as of June 8). Actually it was 102% by Alumni Day, every man on the rolls being in the picture, with a couple of new men thrown in for good measure — hence the extra two per cent. We al- so won the P-rade cup hands down for the best looking class, despite a sprink- ling of pouchy and gray-headed guys. The bald pates were covered by smart looking caps, which proved to be the best part of the outfits we wore. A lot of folks told us that we really did the thing up "brown" in the P- rade, but we surely had to sweat it out to do this. Somebody sold us gray plastic pants (water and air proof) which actually caused some of the warmer blooded individuals to steam by P-rade's end. A couple of self-ap- pointed marshals from the class had to go up and down the line as the P- raie finally got rolling to try to per- suade a lot of us to re-don these "re- ducers." Of course we were headed by one of Philadelphia's leading string bands, but we're cocky enough to believe we would have won the banner without that outfit giving us the necessary lift. We can honestly report, however, that said band added a lot to the whole oc- casion, with many folks commending our class for the effort. Taking the events of the week-end in sequence, as mentioned above, quite a crowd straggled into the taproom of the Country Club during the after- noon, where the club "treated" us to crab patties and other snacks in the course of things. Nine men played golf, including JIcGoldrick, Saiuly Mori'i.soii and Steve Paliska in one threesome; Don Hornbaker, Joe Hunter and Chuck Ambler with Puss Sadler, director of athletics, as one foursome; Harry Lis- ter, Hughie Robinson and McFarlan with Babe Fly (local Balfour repre- sentative) as another.

U S.A battle, or vice versa. Not satisfied with their afternoon's play, McGoldrick and Sandy dragged the hotel manager out of bed early Saturday morning for an- other round. You see, the greens fee for visitors on Saturday is ten bucks, but when players are guests of a mem- ber this levy is cut to five, hence the hotel manager. The class really made its presence felt at the Friday evening alumni din- ner, buffet this time, which worked out okay for our money. First we had such a big crowd there, about sixty, that the rest of the grads thought they were intruding on a '2 6 party. You probably don't need to be told that our reunion theme was the silver goblet with its song. You may recall that we resurrected this tune when we were in college, then the oncoming youngsters took it over, changing the line "with '26 upon it" to "with Le- high upon it." But it's still our song. So Ifrank Kear and his committee rec- ognized this first by furnishing each man with an attractive silver beer mug, appropriately engraved for the occasion, including an embossed Le- high seal. There aren't many Lehigh classes (probably no others) which are pre- dominated by "drys" but WE are. As a result our beer stunt at this affair had to be confined to the birch variety. When the dark stuff was being dis- pensed in our new souvenir mugs, it was figured that the committee was real smart and corraled some bock beer from Easter, and kept it especially for this big occasion, so what a let- down when it was discovered that It was merely birch beer. The mugs were really something, and it is a safe bet that many a '26 mantelpiece or home bar will be en- hanced by this for many years to come. There were a couple left so any of you guys who didn't get one, or want an extra one to pair off with number one, write in to Johnny; he might still have one left, but with one exception it will cost you five bucks. The one exception i-1 AValt McCiiIloiigh who paid his re- union assessment dutifully and then at the last minute had to head for Cali- fornia. He should have received it be- fore this. If you didn't get a good look at that oversize $2 600 hand-made check, you can see it any time in Johnny's office in the Alumni Memorial Hall, where he is having it framed. Our other check for accumulated "interest" turned out to be $623, which means that we went over the top by that much in our ef- forts to raise the $2 6 0. Good going, we'd say, and let's keep 'er rolling from now on. Is there any good reason why our class shouldn't support the Uni- versity to the extent of at least $2 500 per year from here on out? You'll hear more about this from Johnny before long. After the dinner a crowd of us con- verged on the Bethlehem Club and held forth for some time. To prove that they are still as young as they appear, Dav Bell and Hughie Robinson WALK- ED back across the New Street Bridge and all the way up to their room in the new Dravo House. Yes, they were en- 38 LEHIGH ALUMNI BULLETIN tirely sober, so they paid the 1^ toll as we all did when in college except in the pajama P-rades. With the exception of a couple of late arrivals and one or two stiff- necked birds, we were outfitted in the Packard Lab in the course of the morn- ing, where we had taken over about half of the E.E. Department for various activities of our headquarters. In the Department's reading room there was a complete class list with latest ad- dresses; another board filled with greetings from absentees, including one from Mrs. Sgt. Lavin who wrote in behalf of our esteemed honorary member, stricken with a severe heart attack shortly before reunion time. We received no response from "Major" (now B. G. ) Lang, who has been re- tired and is supposedly living in Mis- sissippi. Finally there was a list of our departed members, which was also read at our class banquet that eve- ning. As usual, it took the P-rade an in- terminable time to get rolling and there we were sweating it out, and we mean SWEATING with those non-ven- tilated pants. Romeo Lucente, one of the official P-rade marshals, did his best to keep us in line and up to snuff, so some of the credit for winning the prize should go his way. Now that the award is probably forgotten by our competitors it can be divulged that the Bethlehem citizenry representative of the three-man judging committee is a good personal friend of Johnny's and he thought enough of us to give us those souvenir lighters, so how could we have lost the award.

R BBIDGEPORT 5, T I O N CONNECTICUT , BBIDGEPORT 5, CONNECTICUT We could just about be crammed into that space, and in order to get all faces into the picture we used only two of about a dozen signs we had in the P- rade. You'll notice a generous sprink- ling of class sons in the picture; they also embellished our group in the P- rade. We missed Don Brown, our Class Baby, son of Gus, both of whom were unable to come at the last moment, although they had fully expected to be on hand. We had hardly gotten settled out at the country club after the end of activi- ties on the campus when the commit- tee was rounding us up for the dinner at the unprecedented hour of six o'clock. They had announced that starting time and they succeeded in herding most of us into the hall by that time. In addition to Ken Smiley, present vice president of the University, we had eleven of our friends from the fac- ulty, who despite their trials and trib- ulations with us a quarter of a century ago are still up and about, although several of them are on the retired list. This group included Freddy Ashbaugh, (Bursar) , Harold V. Anderson (Chem.) , Geo Beck, 03 (Chem), Jake Beaver, '04, and Archie Miller (EE), Allison Butts and Bradley Stoughton (Met), Andy Becker, '03 (Civil), Tommy But- terfield (ME), Roy Cowin (Acctg.), Lawrence Gipson (Hist.). We had also invited Harry Pay row (CE) and Alex Kozar of the Lehigh lunch car, but both found the activities of the day too strenuous to permit their joining us in the evening. Space permitting, Harry's note of regret appears at the end of this stuff. Anyone who may have had his doubts about the sobriety of the occa- sion should have listened in on Ken Smiley's thought-provoking address in which he really gave us something to take home. Once Ken really convinced the gang that he had a message for us, he was accorded undivided attention and even the boys nearest the table to the exit leading to the bar quieted down. He not only gave us some con- crete suggestions for the betterment of Lehigh but also mixed in some educa- tional philosophy which made its im- print on the minds of many of those present. As we kept emphasizing in the pre- union communications, distance was no barrier for many of those who re- turned. Ken Sheppard headed the list and captured the prize for the one coming the greatest distance, all the way from Anchorage, Alaska. Other prizes awarded by Frank Kear in be- half of a special committee for that purpose went to Fritz Mercur for com- JULY. 1951 39 icg the shortest distance (he lives nearest the campus of any of those in Bethlehem); Hughie Robinson as the least changed in appearance; Pat Perry for the one changed the most! Jack Shartle as the parent of the most chil- dren and Sam Scrivener as the daddy of twins; Charlie Zug, the one having done the most for Lehigh because of his continued efforts in behalf of the senior class insurance plan, and to Johiiny Max-n-ell for having done the most for this party. George Stutz, '22, the new president of the Alumni Association and Len Schick, Alumni Secretary, looked in on us in the course of the evening and re- affirmed our own egotistical ideas about the qualities of '26. We also had several other (paying) guests from '25 and '27 including Ed Curtis, who had just bowed out after two years as A. A. prexy. As usual we gave ourselves a new deal in top brass. Bill Laramy was elected our prexy for the next five years with Frank Kear as his under- study as vice president; Jimmy LeVan, secretary-treasurer — all chosen unani- mously, of course. Bill reminded us of our responsibil- ity in carrying on the Back-Every-Year program in the '9 6 room of the Hotel. He and Joe Jack.son have been instru- mental in promoting this effort to gradually take over the half-century- plus efforts of '9 6, of which class one dad is a member. Last year we had a goodly representation at this gather- ing, so keep it in mind when next June rolls around. After the traditional singing of the Alma Mater, we said so long for an- other five years when we simply must break the one hundred mark, provided we aren't subjected to any unusual losses.

And here's Harry Payrow's letter: "1431 Lenox Ave., Bethlehem, Pa. June IS, 1951 "Dear Johnny: "Last Saturday I left my house fully intending to accept your kind invita- tion to attend your class reunion. Un- fortunately, I stayed on the campus nearly all day, meeting various former students, and I enjoyed it. But when I got home I found that I was complete- ly 'all in.' I had sort of knocked my- self out. I guess old age has cauglit up with me, as I have a bad heart, and I really did not dare to exert myself any more that day. "So I hope you will forgive me. Shall get over to see you soon." H. A. SEWARD /.O.t/ Uay Terrace, Easton, Pa. The only members of the class seen around South Mountain over Alumni Day weekend were Ziggj- Letowt and Ed Small. But then, it appeared to this writer that the week-end festivi- ties were not well attended at all. It seemed to me to be the dullest and most poorly attended alumni reunion of all those which I have attended — and that means every one from 1924 until now. It would appear that the Alumni Association in its all-out ef- fort to make things informal made them entirely too informal, so much so that attendance was off and en- thusiasm lacking. FLASH — that old flash himself. Bill Green, has become daddy for the third time — making it two boys and a girl. From a very tricky announce- ment — a "delivery tag" — we learn that "one boy, weight 7 pounds, was delivered to Thelma and Bill Green of Green Acres, Catonsville, Md., on May 2S, 1951, in satisfactory condition." We are in receipt of a letter from J. Leland Myer, head of the metallurgy department at Temple. The letter con- tains a lot of news for the class, so here it is: "Dear Seward: "As the shades of the academic year draw to a close and we offer to indus- try another group of metallurgy stu- dents from Temple, it occurs to me that this might be a good time to sum- marize the situation in the form of some news for the column. "I am happy to be able to bring back to the fold two of our class whom I discovered very recently, namely Sam Cornetti, now head of Atmospheric Electricity Group, U. S. Airforce Cam- bridge Lab., residing at 14 Canterbury Road, Waltham, Mass., and Prof. Rob- ert Serber of the physics department of UCLA, Berkeley, Calif. These two restored souls, together with Dave Ep- stein, research lab of RCA at Prince- ton, and myself account for all the En- gineering Physics group of 1930 ex- cepting Vic Stein, who was last with RCA at Camden and leaving for a po- sition in some condenser factory since not located. "Sam Cornetti is interested in em- ploying good basic research students, and also letting research contracts for the Air Force. If you have any of eith- er to offer, it should be your patriotic duty and a pleasure. "Bob Serber took his doctorate at Wisconsin and is specializing in the- oretical physics. Rumor has it that he will be located at Columbia University next academic year. "I frequently see Ed Johnson at the Engineers' Club of Philadelphia, where 1 gave a few lectures recently. Ed is climbing up the ladder at Philadelphia Electric and has put on a knockout course in electronics at the Club, said to be the finest of its kind. "Harold Semar is holding forth at Westinghouse and makes with those tremendously large and expensive gears that drive ships. He and Mrs. Semar live quietly in one of the neigh- boring suburbs near the plant. "As for myself, I am still holding forth at Temple as head of the daytime metallurgy course and coordinator of the evening courses sponsored by the Philadelphia Branch, American Society for Metals. In this latter connection I frequently meet .\rt Bounds of '31, who is chief metallurgist for Superior Tube Co. at Collegeville and a very busy boy. "My additional activities have to do with consulting for several private companies and coordination with the 40 LEHIGH ALUMNI BULLETIN work of the Frankford ArsenaL Tem- ple Institute of Research, and related groups. "Recreation comes in the form of scouting activities, from cubs to scouts to explorers to Alpha Phi Omega (col- lege scouting fraternity). Also coordi- nate some projects for the Philadelphia Science Council, where we are always on the lookout for talented science youngsters in high school, getting in- dustry to assist them to an education. "My spare time goes to commuting to and from the farmstead in upper Bucks County, where we live unpre- tentiously but comfortably amid roll- ing green hills and tomatoes grown for the Campbell Soup Company. From there I manage to attend a few Lehigh events, such as music festival. Bach Choir, and quite a number of sports events with the local scouting groups. The University is very generous in this respect and has let the boys see wrest- ling, football, basketball, and swim meets for the tax price of the tickets. "Paul Bahr is with Pennsylvania Transformer Co. as design engineer. He is also part-time farmer in the vi- cinity of Pittsburgh. "As most of you recall. Miles Christ- man (Westlnghouse) and Harry Zim- mer (USMC) have answered the final roll call. Both of these fine men of '3 are keenly missed by their families and friends. "Well, Seward, that about sums up the situation for the engineering phys- ics and Price Hall (East End) groups of 1930. I recognize that this epistle may be unduly long, but you recently complained about empty column space, so here is some 'filler.' "Best of everything to you and all of '3 and keep up the good work on the column, which is much appreci- ated by all who see it. "Sincerely, J. Leland Myer. "P.S. I should not do injustice to M. Bennetch, who lives and works in Bethlehem as research and control chemist for a paint manufacturer. Al Rogers, also chemist, spent some time manufacturing his own line of cos- metics and beauty parlor supplies af- ter leaving Lehigh. More recently he was connected with Western Electric Co. and now is said to be in govern- ment service. M." Well, this brings the year to a close. There will be no more column until the fall and then the breezes will be gathering their forces around South Mountain, the tang of autumn will fill the air, and the thud of the pigskin will again be music to our ears. Let's hope we come up with another edition of the Fine attendance and good time augur well for the 25th of '31. Big Brown like the 1950 copy. We'll be seeing you come the fall. ROBERT H. HARRIS 78 Old Short Hills Road Short Hills, N. J. For the attention of all you readers who did not make it, you have just missed the greatest get-together the class of '31 ever contrived, either in school or since. At this moment I do not have the official count, but at least SO were here at one time or an- other. The reunion committee we were somehow smart enough to think of at our 15th certainly made the 20th a wonderful affair. Joe McLernon, Charlie Folwcll, Henry Faust and Sam Goodman all helped Chairman Allle Sindel to put on the show, and even the weather could not have been bet- ter. We didn't win any prizes — other classes had more back — some brought more wives and kids — the total hair left in our class (most of it sprinkled with dim grey) would not stuff a large pin cushion — none of us ran up or down any stairs — but the gang won't forget this past weekend, dim though some of those hours seem. now. Most of us didn't remember that the campus was so beautiful, the trees so shady, the buildings so calm. We hadn't thought that we could remem- ber so many names and faces, and that we really had been here with some excellent guys — this time we got to- gether and stayed together long enough to find it out. Enough sentiment; you should all have made it — we've decided not to miss any more. The beer bung came out of the bar- rel at the Jacksonian Club Friday af- ternoon at four, and it became evident early that there'd be a bunch back because by 6 P.M. there were 30 as- sembled at the bar (at least half Re- publicans). Buffet supper was held in the new Grace Hall. Perce Sadler was there, Bart, Schick, Leckonby and lots of faculty I can't recall. The building is modern and the indoor stadium tremendous, and as Perce said, makes the indoor facilities among the best in the colleges of the east. Maennerchor next stop — long bar, full pitchers, smoke, guys coming in, wives being introduced, faces, songs — clock speeds up, eleven, twelve, Pitts- burgh car arrives, hugs, punches, smoke, piano, beer — one, two, where is the time going? The class of '31 takes up most the room, younger classes look at us like we were odd characters — smoke, faces, beer, where do we stay? The uniforms were perfect — denim overalls and jackets. Just what we needed; you could lie down, sit down, anywhere when you wanted to. Most of us wanted to often. We came through the class picture and the parade with flying colors, and all made it in forma- tion. The crowning event was the ban- quet at the Hotel, and the song fest put on with Fuller, Ticehurst and Powers relieving each other at the piano. Those who were there saw it, those who were not I could not paint it for on paper, so I won't try. We really enjoyed it.

PAZZETTI. Ill 1232 Candler Bldg.. Atlanta, Ga. Well, gentlemen, I think you will agree that without taking away from any previous year's effort this issue completes the best year our class has ever seen for newsy Bulletin letters. In appreciation of this I doff the big- gest sombrero I can find in the direc- tion of BUI Shank who, by his interest and follow-through, lighted the Are and kept it going. Thank you, Bill. Let's look at the latest group of questionnaires: Al Stern reports from his home ad- dress at 532 Broad Ave., Leonia, N. J., that he is now assistant treasurer of the Chicago Pneumatic Tool Co. in New York City. As you may recall, Al was married in 19 31 to Emma Gans, and proudly points to his daughter Phyllis, age IS, who is on the Dean's list as a sophomore at the Music Con- servatory of Baldwin Wallace College in Berea, Ohio. Congrats. Al furthered his education by acquiring an M.S. at Columbia in 1940, along with C.P.A. Rating from New York State Univer- sity, and does some part-time lectur- ing in accounting at Rutgers Univer- sity. Busy man! Here's one from Atty Moore, who checks in, from all places, from New Orleans, where he lists his home ad- dress as 238 Ridgewood Dr., at which place he sojourns when not perspiring for Price Waterhouse & Co. at the Canal Building, where he is a manag- ing accountant. C. Atwell married Catherine Berger in 1938 and can now boast of C. Atwell Jr., age 10, and Catherine B. Jr., age 5 — all of which means he has been fairly busy, since he put in four years with the U. S. Army, 30 months of which were over- seas. How it happens that I have never run into you on Bourbon Street, Atty, is beyond me. I'll be looking for you next trip. Steve Stevenson, now living at 8 26 Delaware Ave. in Bethlehem, right next door to Leonard Hall, of which he is Dean, married Doris Quier in 19 42 and they are busy raising sons Jimmy, age 7, and Freddy, age 3. Steve was a Chaplain with the U. S. Army in North Africa and Italy from 1942 to 1946, and that was a rocky road. He has just recently been elect- ed to the Board of Directors of the Lehigh Home Club. He reports that he has just talked by long distance phone to Fred Thalmann, who is Rec- tor of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Troy, N. Y. Al Swenson, of whom we have read before, is living at 1881 Acorn Lane, Huntington Valley, Pa., and lists as his principal occupation vice president of A. A. Swenson, Inc., which, if I know anything, would be a concern hard to keep up with. His lovely wife's maiden name (married in 19 40) was Madeline V. Ketels and carrying on for them will be Alvin A. Swenson, III, aged S, and Candace Louise, aged 11 months. Al states that he is still in the active reserve and is anticipat- ing short active duty this summer. Remember our first active duty camp, Al, at Fort Washington? The only thing that he seems to care to make public about his professional career is "just trying to make a buck." Norm Taylor, who is now living at 771 Fayette St., Cumberland, Md., is production supervisor of the cellulose acetate department for Celanese Corp. of America at Cumberland, Md. Norm married Dorothy Beard in 19 39 and reports daughter Sue, age 8. He joins Atty Moore in stating that 1937 men are few and far between in his area. Doug Wright is assistant trust offi- cer for Fidelity Union Trust Co., in Newark, and lives at 117 W. View Road, Upper Montclair, N. J. He and his wife, the former Helen Gray Hen- Pat Langdon hadn't recovered — he'll write more in October. 42 LEHIGH ALUMNI BULLETIN njng, whom he married in 1933, have two children — Douglas C. Jr., 16, and Roxlyn G., age 13. Looks like one Le- high man any day now, Doug. Here, getting out from underneath Miners' caps, are Sam Sprague and Chuck Tillson, both of whom are toil- ing for the Bethlehem Collieries Corp. Sam is mining engineer at Ellsworth, Pa., and lives at 14 Linden St. of that city. He married E. Ruth Martsteller in 1943 and they have two children — Vivian Anne, age 7, and Elizabeth Ruth, age 2. Sam lists as his hobbies gardening, bowling, soft balling and woodworking, and then says "in other words, tinkering" — which is not a bad hobby. Chuck is assistant mine super- intendent at Cokesburg, Pa. Married Madalyn Fidler in 19 41 and proudly presents Charles D., Ill, age 9, and Norma Jean, age 6. After four years of active duty Chuck says he is at the moment sweating out the possibilities of the active reserve. Bill Triuiipler writes in from 121 Pine Ridge Rd., R. D. 3, Media, Pa., where he resides with his good wife, the former Irma Steinert, whom he married in 19 40, and two children — Johanna, age 8, and Albert, age 3. Bill is assistant manager, mechanical de- sign, turbine engineering, for Westing- house Electric at Essington, Pa., and says he sees something of Alex Haver- stick and his department at Westing- house's East Pittsburgh Works. Oh, these engineers — Bill reports that he spent a month in Europe this winter on a "technical" mission and allows as how he saw Paris, Zurich, Wiesbaden, and London, and even had a few days skiing in the Alps. Oh, these Engi- neers. Fred Stieg writes in from 160 Za- briskie PI., River Edge, N. J., where he is laboratory director for the Na- tional Lead Co., Titanium Division, in New York. And further, responding to Shank's probing for further informa- tion, admits that he is the director of the largest by gosh technical service laboratory in the paint industry, and is a nationally known authority on emulsion and latex paints. Tie that one, you chemists. Fred and his wife, the former Lily Rushworth, have two children — Fred B., Ill, age 7, and Hazel, age 12. He lists photography and camping as hobbies — but how the hell does he ever get out of the laboratory? Here is a report from a man who, if all the rumors I've heard about his position are true, is not long for this world — a single man living in Wash- ington, D. C. Jay Thomas checks in from Quebec House, 2800 Quebec St., %WILSON^, *tfi0iaium 1876 Diamond Jubilee 1951 ROLLING STEEL DOORS ROLLING STEEL SHUTTERS ROLLING STEEL GRILLES SECTIONFOLD OVERHEAD DOORS — Wood fir Steel ROLLING WOOD DOORS ROLLING WOOD PARTITIONS General Offices: 370 Lexington Ave. New York 17, N. Y. L. BEVAN, '21 President Factory : NORFOLK, VA. N. W., Washington, D. C, where he is technical representative for the Amer- can Cyanamid Co. With all those Washington agencies the rest of us have to work under, American Cyana- mid must have a lot of confidence in this boy's self control to transfer him from the Pittsburgh plant to that city of romance. Jay says he has seen no '3 7 men since coming to Washington and would like to hear from anyone who passes through — phone Executive 1833. Might be a good bet, fellows. Well, I'm glad to get some word of you, Mark Woleott. We can see, how- ever, from the activities you list, that you are slightly busy. Mark is doing well at his profession of physician- surgeon — is Associate in Surgery, Women's Medical College of Pa.; In- structor in Surgery at Graduate School of Medicine, U. of P., and Assistant Chief of Service to Dr. L. K. Fer- guson, Philadelphia General Hospital. This has come after five years with U. S. Navy from '42 to '47. Mark re- sides at 809 Arbor Rd., Yeadon, Pa., with his wife, the former Martha Eliz- abeth Frey, and their children Judith Ann, age 8, and Suzanne Elizabeth, age 6. Say, Mark, I hear that Harmie it: back at Purdue as backfleld coach, after a fairly successful stay at Wa- bash. Woody Woodsum checks in from P. O. Box 1292, Allentown, Pa., where ho resides and represents Yarnall & Company of Philadelphia. Woody mar- ried Loretta Matthews is 1923, and they reside at 16 S. 13 th Street in Allentown. He lays claim to being the oldest man to receive a B.S. at Le- high, having acquired one in M.E. at Maine in 1915. Glad to hear from you. Woody. This is the last of the question- naires available for this month's is- sue, and again I want to pass on a note of gratitude to brother Shank for his idea and work on this. Many of the questionnaires mention the en- joyment you fellows have had out of this last year of the Bulletin, and I agree. It was wonderful. Rather than take advantage of a good thing, I concur with Bill in his feeling that there ought to be another volunteer hanging around who would like to master-mind next year's Bulle- tin. We have just heard that Dean Stevenson has volunteered for the cor- respondent's job. Thank you, Steve. If you tire and need spot help, call on Frank Howells or myself. We'll be looking for good columns. Just saw Ted VanCampen last night. He was on his way through Atlanta to Muscle Shoals, Ala. Had a nice chat and dinner with him. He now lives hap- JULY, 1951 43 pily in Richmond, Va., witli liis wife and three-year-old boy and is now district manager for Detroit Steel Cor- poration. Travels through Virginia and the Carolinas with occasional trii;s to Alabama and the midwest. Was look- ing forward to reunion. JUNE 1952 — FIFTEENTH REUNION Yes, you're getting old. Fifteen years out — and doing right well. Some of us haven't added much to the population of the country, but on looking over some of these questionnaires we find that others of you have made up for our shortcomings. Fifteen years out — and many of us can count our visits to the campus on the fingers of one hand. So it's time for a bang-up re- union — in fact, it's time for us to take our rightful place in alumni activities, and I can think of no better way of starting in to sweep the prizes for reunion classes in 1952. Incidentally, for those of you who missed the TENTH, ask someone who was there how much he enjoyed it — how much he enjoyed seeing the changes or lack of changes in folks he hadn't seen for years; and the peculiar, indescribable feeling of walking around that beauti- ful campus again. It's hard to beat. Make it hard to miss. We have 25 3 live members of our class and it seems to me that we should have a MAJORITY present. Frank Howells, Bob Vogels- berg and I are currently living about 9 00 miles from the campus, and we all plan to be there. You plan too. To coordinate a super reunion such as the Fifteenth should be, we need a fast working committee located at the center of activities and informa- tion, which of course is Bethlehem. We need a man to head it up with imagination, energy, planning tore- sight and who is located at headquar- ters. I know of such a man. and I here- by put the finger on Hal Dent as Gen- eral Chairman of the Fifteenth Re- union. I further nominate as commit- tee members in Bethlehem the follow- ing — Len Schick, Ace Connors, Flip Fairbanks, Rudy Ashman, Dean Ste- venson and Freddy Dornblatt. And as coordinator in Philadelphia Herm Hutchinson — in Pittsburgh Bill Schna- bel — ^^in New York George Barker — in Boston Charlie Ford, and in Buffalo Joe Walton. The cities mentioned out- side of Bethlehem, I believe, will cover the major concentration of graduates. If anyone feels that I have missed one, please write Hal Dent, 654 Highland St., Bethlehem, Pa., and give him the opportunity of selecting a coordinator for that area. In Atlanta we need no coordinator because we'll be there! If anyone disagrees with this selec- tion or knows of someone else who definitely should be on that commit- Bag of gold for the University instead of costumes for '41. tee, please write Hal Dent or myself so that this situation can be corrected. I chose the committee from 900 miles away, with the aid of Bill Shank's questionnaires and the Epitome. So please help out if you have an idea, because all we are trying to do is to make the Fifteenth the best reunion ever. Before I close I want to mention another man who has been doing a good but unrewarded job for our class. I am speaking of our class agent, Joe Rossetti. There is another thankless job — and a job well done by Joe. I, for one, extend my congratulations to him for working with a group who have not broken many records — and that in- cludes me. Have all of you answered Joe's appeal for contributions this year? Joe, also (like Shank), says he is tiring. So unless we can prevail on him to keep this job until we meet for reunion, we may have some news about a class agent by the October issue. So for now, hold it on the road and think this over — for every memory we have of Lehigh and our class, we also have a responsibility. Let us all think a little more clearly about these. So long. C. F. KALMBACH 269 N. Highland Ave., Lansdovme, Pa. Seventy-seven members of '41, most of them with their wives and many with their children as well, left the grand 10th reunion weekend with words of praise and appreciation for the job of planning, preparation, and execution accomplished by Jim Mitch- ell and his committee. Although only 48 are officially listed on the Alumni Association registration sheets, Jim's figures show that at least 77 of us were at Scotty Wood's, and several more were present on Friday night or during the parade. In fact, counting wives, kiddies, pets, etc., our parade showing must have exceeded 150 persons. And adding the fair sex to the picture at the Saturday after- noon party, more than 100 diners were at Scotty Wood's. So you can see that to please all of these people the committee had to work long and hard. Clyde William- son helped Jim Mitchell as co-chair- man. George Griffitlis and Bill Toohey master-minded the parade. Bob Reber and John CuUiney placed the signs to Scotty Wood's, prepared the maps, and helped with the parade. Bob Stub- bings, Bob Dlmmich and Bob Stoudt arranged the outing. And George Mes- singer and Art Marvin pitched in as needed. We all tried to say "thank you" to these fellows in Bethlehem, but the job they did deserves another "well- done" here and now. Bill Hausennan, San Francisco; Bill Groeger, Seattle; Fred Butler, Mil- waukee; John Findorff, Madison, Wis., and Al Lee, Blackwell, Okla., surely put many miles behind them to be in Bethlehem for the big 10th. And it was good to see our class officers, Al Lee and Gus Rieniondy, heading the Saturday Parade with our new, big '41 banner. But to get back to the beginning, about 2 5 gathered around the three tables reserved for '41 at the Friday night Alumni Buffet Dinner. Jim Mitchell's copy of the Epitome and his 44 LEHIGH ALUMNI BULLETIN list of registrants were put to good use as many of us tried to remember names and faces not seen for 10 years. Those minor problems were soon for- gotten, ho-wever, when Al Hess, not satisfied with the prospects of a pro- posed questionnaire to determine the vital statistics of '41 ten years later, ran his own survey on the spot. The startling results — we're all making ?10,000 a year — killed all further plans for statistical exercises over the weekend. After the dinner, and at the Maen- nerchor, the group continued to grow as Dixie Walker, Dukes Wooters, Har- ry Gunnison, Ham Strayer and several others arrived. We found, too, that Bob Stubbings and Ray Meyer are back on the campus in the Chem Depart- ment. The group really swelled in num- bers Saturday morning in Packer Hall as we got our badges and became re- acquainted while waiting for the lunch- eon at Lamberton Hall. Many of the fellows who could drive to Bethlehem in a few hours began to arrive. Bob Spilman and Ellis Snovel from Easton, Sam Cross from New York City. Don Eadie from Aberdeen and a mob from the Philadelphia area that I suspected must exist, even though the Philadel- phia Club meetings have never shown it. Al Breen, Wally Kendall, John Tiflt, Charley Carter and Dick Shep- herd joined Rog McNamara and Al Hess who had arrived on Friday as delegates from the City of Brotherly Love. The parade was really a family af- fair, with our gang being the largest, most disorderly, and undoubtedly hav- ing the most fun. We wuz robbed, of course, when the excellent idea of giv- ing the University the cash we normal- ly would have spent on costumes did not produce the prize it deserved. Instead of being all talked out by the time the class affair at Scotty Wood's began, the gang seemed to gain its second wind, and that's when serious conversation seemed to really get under way. The site was swell, the food fine, and everyone hated to leave. Later, it developed that copies of the picture taken on the library steps would be available at ?1.00 each. If this is news to you, perhaps Jim Mitchell can still get you a copy. While at Scotty Wood's we began to miss some of the fellows who should have been there. Bob Wilson and I, for example, tried to find fellow ME's such as Chick Ritchie, Clancy Reber, Bernie Stuber, Ben Ojserkis, etc. And there were other similar deficiencies from other curricula groups, although someone said that the "Mets" were all there, and from living groups as well. IS VACUUM THAT'S 99.99% PERFECT good enough for yom process? I HIS degree of vacaum is easily ■obtained TFith the Croli-Reynolds four or five stage steam jet EVAC- TOR,with no moving parts. Each stage from a technical standpoint is as simple as tlie valve that turns it on. IVumerous four- stage units are maintaining industrial vacuum down to 0.2 mm. and less, and many thousands of one, t^vo and three-stage units are main- taining vacuum for intermediate industrial requirements on practically all types of processing equipment. By permitting water, aqueous solutions or any volatile liquid to evaporate under high vacuum and Tvithout heat from an outside source, enough BTU's can be removed to chill the liquid dowTi to 32°F. or even lower in the case of solutions. This is the principle of the Croll-Reynolds "Chill-Vactor." Hundreds of these have been installed throughout the United States and in several foreign countries. An engineering staff of many years experience has specialized on this type of equipment and is at your service. WTiy not vrrite today, outlining YOUR vacuum problem?

Conversation like this, along with the grand time being experienced by all, o£ course led to next time — the big 15th reunion. And so while it is all still fresh in our minds, Jim Mitchell is going to get out a questionnaire asking in gen- eral what the participants liked about the 10th reunion, and what sugges- tions they could make for future use. This questionnaire will accompany a financial report we'll all get from Jim. The alumni office has volunteered to tack on to this article the names they have of those registered for the big 10th weekend. As I said before, this list of 48 is incomplete, but we'll bring it up to date in the next issue with the rest of the names from Mitchell's carefully kept records.

TIFFT Lafayette Bldg., 5th and Chestnut Sts., Philadelphia 6, Penna. I imagine this issue will be quite a big one. at least for those classes which held a 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, etc. re- union. Since our 10th is not until next year this will be a short column. I had a letter from Dick Palmer, who is in the bunnie business in Read- ing, Pa. Here it is: "Thanks very much for your note of the .31st, and to be sure I am among those who have practically died as far as class correspondence goes. "At present I don't believe I shall be able to get back to the reunion this month, but will know better a little closer to the 16th. And, as you remind me, our tenth will be upon us next year, which will call for some thought. "To bring you up to date on Vivian and myself, I moved the family to JULY. 1951 45 Reading in 19 4S to start in tlie candy manufacturing business, and am still at it.

A little sister Is on the way, we hope, and I suppose it would be only fitting to name her Harriet. "Best of everything to you, Arch, and for the benefit of the many other non-correspondents like myself, I will attest to the fact that a short note like this takes very little time, is a lot of fun, and should be indulged in more frequently." The class of '42 is proud to present our pediatrician, who is capable of handling all offspring of '42ers. A clip- ping from a Bethlehem paper reads as follows: "Dr. Fi-ancis A. Gress, who recently completed two years of service and studied in the pediatrics department of the University of Michigan Hospital, Ann Arbor, Mich., will begin practice at 601 Delaware Avenue tomorrow in diseases of infants and children. "He was graduated from Lehigh University and Jefferson Medical Col- lege, Interned at Geisinger Memorial Hospital, Danville, and then entered the armed services. Upon his return from Michigan, Dr. Gress had taken over the practice of Dr. John R. Phil- lips, Allentown, and is now relocating permanently In Bethlehem. "Dr. Gress and his wife, the former Mary R. Mervan of Bethlehem, and their five-year-old daughter Carol are residing at the Delaware Avenue ad- dress." We welcome any ideas you fellows have regarding our big 10th reunion next year. If you are interested in serv- ing on the committee, please let me know. Meantime, I'm listing the names of '42 men who registered on the cam- pus for this year's reunion: Dick Goi'- doii, Jack McGonigle and Ed Mulil- haiiscn. We'll swell that number con- siderably next year, by heck. WILLIAM B. HURSH Parkhurst Apts., B-1, Bethlehem, Pa.

I shall limit the length of my column accordingly. I reported recently that Bob Smith was in this country on vacation from his job in Venezuela. I may have also reported at that time that he was seri- ously considering working in this coun- try. A short note from him recently confirmed that thought. At that writ- ing the details were not available, but he hoped to be able to locate satisfac- torily somewhere in eastern Pennsyl- vania, very likely in the rapidly ex- panding Philadelphia area. A clipping recently received from the University bears news of the mar- riage of Leonard Schwab in late March. I quote in part as follows: "Miss Jane Lenore Holsteln, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sidney G. Holsteln of Cleveland, Ohio, became the bride of Leonard C. Schwab In Cleveland last evening. "The bride attended Miami Univer- sity and Cleveland College and was graduated from Leland Powers School of Radio and Theatre, Boston. She has been afilllated with Cain Park Theatre, Cleveland Heights, and was recently employed with Station WJMO in Cleve- land. "The bridegroom was graduated from Lehigh University with the de- gree of mechanical engineer. He Is a member of Tau Delta Phi fraternity. "Mr. Schwab served with the Ord- nance Department of the Army in Italy as first lieutenant. He Is a member of the Junior Chamber of Commerce of Cumberland, Md." There are two more recent mar- riages to report. One was that of Rube Gearhart on June 9. I understand from Tom McKinley that the occasion was practically a Lehigh reunion. Rube and his bride, I presume, will live in or near Alexandria, Va., where he is attending divinity school. The second "June bride" is Ed Diehl. Received an announcement to the effect that he had married the former Lois Mary McPall of Ashvllle, N. Y. Perhaps I will hear from him later with the details. Am pleased to say that this is the last deadline for a few months. I shall enjoy my vacation, and I trust that you will enjoy yours. GERALD H. WAGMAN 57 Parh Terrace West New York 34, N. Y. On June 15 and 16 the first five-year reunion of the class of '46 took place at Lehigh. The six representatives of the class present — namely John Gehr, Chuck Hafner, Maurice Deane, Fred Goetz, Al Wilson and myself — had an enjoyable time. We arrived on campus Saturday morning, registered, had a look at the place, visited some of our professors, then sat down to a nice pic- nic outdoors, for the weather was beautiful. Alter dinner we had our official class picture taken, then prepared for the parade. We were stationed behind the Bethlehem American Legion Band, which made our shortage In numbers a little less noticeable. Chuck Hafner arranged for us to wear class numerals, brown ties, and white helmets. The class of 19 50 took up the rear, so we weren't quite lost. Anyhow, we march- 46 LEHIGH ALUMNI BULLETIN ed around campus and finished up at the flagpole, where all gathered and sang the Alma Mater. Class prizes ■were awarded and then we straggled away after listening to a short concert by the Uptown String Band. Three of the group — Chuck, John and Al — held a class dinner at the Rathskeller. The rest of us were un- able to make it. All in all it was a success, although on a small scale. Have a nice summer. See you next issue. W. THOMAS BACHMANN SS2 'Norm St., White Plains, N. Y The four years since most of us were undergraduates together certain- ly rolled around quickly. We have traveled all over the world and are still moving. I have been rather sta- tionary, having been employed by the same firm since two days after com- mencement, am still single, and have- n't even moved. With Manhattan Cas- ualty Co., I have reached the position of Underwriter and am in charge of all automobile lines in New York State other than New York City. As far as being a "little wheel" in town is con- cerned, I am an active member of our volunteer fire department, past presi- dent for two terms of the Board of Deacons of the local Presbyterian Church, am at present Vice Commander of Post 135, American Legion, and am a member of several organizations where less time is consumed, like the University Club. All of this leaves me with little or no time to do letter writing. This year I fell down terribly on this column. Report lacking on the activities of the first for ^50. for which I wish to offer my sincerest apologies. I see the next year as even worse and I would like to devote much more time to helping Lehigh raise money, which she needs badly. As a result, I have already tendered my res- ignation as a member of the Execu- tive Committee of the Council of Class Agents so that I can devote more di- rect time to our class with its "first fifth" in the offing. I am also most reluctantly retiring from this job with this article In the hope that the alumni secretary will be able to locate a more "live wire" with more "bull" than yours truly to keep all informed as to the activities of '47. One for each year and one for good luck. More luck next time. May I sincerely offer thanks to each and every member of the class who was good enough to write me during these last four years. I hope that you will continue to do the same with your next correspondent. So very many of you who haven't given "your all" to the cause of this column can help him by writing next year. p. W. McRAVEN 1122-A N. Osage Dr., Tulsa, Okla. Although technically we were not expected to have a column this month I thought I would pass along what little news came in anyway. Actually, we only received three letters, so this won't take up too much space. Tom Barclay came through with a nice letter to tell us that he is now at the Oak Ridge National Labs for train- ing in atomic energy. Tom, as you may know, works for DuPont, having upon graduation accepted a job in their Richmond, Va., plant. From Oak Ridge Tom will be sent to a plant on the Savannah River in South Carolina. At present, however, he is doing some very interesting research and develop- ment work and is bewildered to find that he actually uses some of the cours- es he used to moan about in school. So that you fellows can write Tom, his address is Room 242, Carlisle Hall, Oak Ridge, Tenn. Bob Behuonte remained at Lehigh to pick up his M.S. in '49 and so be- came acquainted with a lot of our gang. Being a kind-hearted gent he has kindly passed along some news I am sure you will want to hear. Bob's cousin, Ted Barbate, is now JULY. 1951 47 on duty at Wright Field, Dayton, Ohio. He is with an intelligence unit there and his present address is Cpl. Ted Barbato, 3 6 0th Support Sqdn., Wright-Patterson A. F. B., Dayton, Ohio. Bob also passes on tlie information that Ted Englehardt is now working in Philadelphia, Pa.; Bob Dunn o( Mill- burn, N. J., is employed in the re- search department of the Wright Aer- onautical Corp., Woo-dridge, N. J., and George Vogt is now in the tax depart- ment ot Peat, Marwick & Mitchell Co., a C.P.A. firm of Burrow, Wade & Guthrie. During evenings George at- tends the Fordham Law School. Bob says Leon Avakian is now work- ing for the N. J. Central Railroad. As you may remember, I told you fellows of this move and how Leon ran Into Bill Kllroy in Juarez, New Mexico. In- cidentally, I Icnow a pretty good story about a guy in Juarez but it is not quite the type which should be told in this column. Other fellows Bob has seen recently are Bob Smith, who now is with the C.P.A. firm of Tooche, Niven, Baily and Smart in Newark, N. J., and he says he ran into Hari-j- Gumble in the Poconos, where Harry was spending his honeymoon at Split Rock Lodge. "Red" Bovaird is reported to be work- ing on his M.S. at Brown University. I think we owe Mr. Belmonte a vote of thanks for passing the above infor- mation on to us. Last but not least, we received a very swell letter from Ralph Reber, who now is a first lieutenant with the 3 3 7th A.A.A. and for the second time wishes that he were back in civies. Ralph was inducted at Reading, Pa., on May 1 and was sent to Camp Stew- art, Ga., where he is in the midst of some very intensive training. After his present basic training, Ralph will spend about seven or eight months learning to shoot straight with the 90mm. anti-aircraft gun. In the same battery with Ralph is another '49er, John Nally, who also went in May 1. Ralph's address is Btry. A, 337 A.A.A. Gun Bn., Camp Stewart, Ga. So many ot our gang are in the service now that I am beginning to feel like a war correspondent. Well, that's all the news I have for you this month. Needless to say, I ex- pect to hear from all of you this sum- mer. So when some time you have a few minutes, drop poor old Mac a line so he will have some material for his next effort.
